Westhampton Forest is just southwest of Westhampton Lake on the University of Richmond’s campus. We’re trying to understand how spring bud-burst and fall-foliage might be changing as Richmond’s climate changes. Thanks for helping out!
We're interested in understanding how vegetation and climate interact! The timing of spring (bud burst, leaf out) and fall (leaves changing color, leaf off) are changing across Richmond, and we intend to specifically use the campus at the University of Richmond as a living laboratory. And, we're excited that members of the greater University of Richmond community can help contribute to this scientific effort.
