Extension Educator in Story About Timing of Fall Foliage

UMaine Cooperative Extension and Maine Sea Grant climate change educator Esperanza Stancioff was quoted in an Associated Press wire story about the changes in timing to the arrival of fall foliage, and the possible link to climate change. Stancioff, who runs the “Signs of the Seasons” phenology project in which gardeners, 4-H programs, teachers, students and family collect data, said there are signs that things are changing, and some species are being affected while others are not.
