SeasonWatch November Tree Festival

November 15 @ 8:00 am - November 28 @ 8:00 pm

SeasonWatch’s tree festival is a unique nationwide event dedicated to observing and appreciating trees anywhere around you. Observe tree canopies and look at the leaves, flowers, fruits and animals that visit trees; and record these observations on the SeasonWatch website or android app.  Are you ready to celebrate trees with us? 

When: 15 – 28 November 2021 

Where: Anywhere in India 

There are fun challenges too! 

  1. 100-not-out! – make 100 observations per week of the festival 
  2. Spy the species – observe 10 different species per week. 
  3. Mango mania – observe as many mango trees around you as you can. 

Complete the challenges and you could be a lucky prize-winner! 

How to participate: 

  1. If you’re new to SeasonWatch, register on the website or Android app.
  2. Go outdoors and choose any SeasonWatch species to observe.
  3. To make a one-time only observation on a tree, click on the ‘casual’ tab, and then on the ‘eye’ icon. To observe the same tree more than once, click on the ‘regular’ tab and then the ‘+’ button to register it with Seasonwatch, or on the ‘eye’ icon to add observations on a registered tree. You can make both types of observations for the November Tree Festival! Need more help? Watch our video tutorials to get-set-and-go!
  4. Make an observation as follows – imagine the tree canopy to be a circle and divide it in 3 equal parts from the centre. If the stage you are observing is found in ⅓ parts, choose ‘few’. If the stage is seen in more than one part, choose ‘many’, and if it is absent, choose ‘none’. 

    To add observations on the leaves, flowers and fruits, imagine the tree canopy to be a circle and divide it in 3 equal parts from the centre. If the stage you are observing is found in ⅓ parts, choose ‘few’. If the stage is seen in more than one part, choose ‘many’, and if it is absent, choose ‘none’.

  5. To share your observations with everyone, make sure to make your profile is set to ‘public’ on the website (Login > Account > My profile > Make profile public), and keep a track of daily observations at Explore > Patterns > Observations.

Participate in other ways by doing tree-walks with tree lovers, forwarding this event to tree enthusiasts, or joining our Facebook event. Help us spread the word!

Happy SeasonWatching!
