‘Buds, Berries and Leaves’ – the latest community science survey is launched

‘Buds, Berries and Leaves’ is the latest Community Science survey to be launched by Moors for the Future Partnership - as residents and visitors to the Peak District and South Pennines continue to help record how the moorland environment is responding to climate change.

The survey has been designed to encourage volunteers to record the timings of seasonal events – such as leaf-opening, flowering, fruiting and leaf-fall – in four well known upland plants: bilberry, rowan, crowberry and heather.
