This documentary short explores 35 years of weather journals recorded by the Whitneys in Kierstead Mountain, New Brunswick. Specifically examined are how some bio-indicators such as spring peepers, robins, lilacs and trees have been responding to climate change. These examples are illustrated and animated to offer an engaging perspective on locally sourced citizen science. Watch to find out how climate change might be affecting the region of the Fundy Biosphere Reserve and why it is important for local people to keep watch.
