View our chronolog station!
Chronolog is a new community/citizen science project that helps researchers and land managers install photo stations at environmentally significant locations. Using a photo station (pictured above), any citizen scientist can take photos from a standardized point of view and submit them to be included in a crowd-sourced time lapse. The station pictured below is placed on the Beargrass Creek Greenway next to Waterfront Botanical Gardens. The gate between the Greenway and the Gardens is open during regular business hours. It closes one hour prior to the Gardens’ closing time.
