Year 6 EkoSkola students attending St Nicholas College, Dingli Primary are busy observing their almond tree as it prepares for winter sleep. These young students are participating in the Autumn Phenology Campaign (The GLOBE Programme) as part of EkoSkola’s LEAF (Learning About Forests) programme. The students are observing leaf colour change, uploading their measurements into the GLOBE database and comparing their data with schools across Europe.

The students are observing the change in colour of selected leaves of an almond tree located in the school garden and reporting green-down data.
