Event Details

Cherry blossoms and other flowers in the D.C. area are blooming up to two days earlier each spring than they did 100 years ago. What does this tell us about the world around us? Find out at a visual discovery where you can see the science of phenology.

The annual National Cherry Blossom Festival provides us with an opportunity to consider phenology, or the recurring cycle of animal and plant life stages. Phenological observations can give us insight into larger patterns affecting different species.

Join the Koshland Science Museum and Miraikan, Japan's National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation, for a visual discovery of the science of cherry blossoms. With data visualized on Miraikan's Geo-Scope, explore how scientists use remote-sensing to track phenological patterns. Then, take a closer look to discover how we can all participate in phenological observations in our own communities.

Advance ticket purchase is strongly recommended. Attendees are encouraged to review the museum's ticket policy.

Please call the Koshland Science Museum at 202-334-1201 with questions about the program.
