The Oregon Season Tracker (OST) program recruits and trains citizen scientist volunteers to collect and report local precipitation data and plant seasonal events like bud break and flowering. OST volunteers track these events in their backyard, on their farms and woodlands, and in schoolyards. They report their data online, making it available to researchers at OSU and across the country.
