Chabot Space & Science Center: Sword Ferns in the Redwood Ecosystem

As part of the Communicating Climate Change (C3) Citizen Science initiative, museum visitors and volunteers throughout the Bay area observe and record local phenomena that are indicative of climate change. Student volunteers at Chabot have teamed up with a researcher from the University of California, Berkeley to investigate the effects of a change in climate on the sword fern, an important part of the Redwood ecosystem.
