Track the greening of spring in the Northern Hemisphere through 'Red Emperor' tulip test gardens.
More than 400 classrooms planted Journey North test gardens this past fall. Each group followed the same protocol; 'Red Emperor' tulips planted according to specific guidelines. As the tulip plants emerge and bloom, the young scientists will report and track the greening of spring on our real-time maps.
Students making observations in their own schoolyards, and tracking the greening of spring across the Northern Hemisphere begin to see how season-driven weather and climatic factors influence plant growth. The relationship between geography and climate, and the greening of spring is revealed, one garden at a time.
