Creating a schedule

Whether you’re testing weekly or monthly, consistency is key to creating great, valuable data

When: Observations are great anytime, but the most meaningful results are done over time. We create mini-graphs of your data so try and be consistent. That might mean you try and test every week or month during your area’s testing season (usually late spring through to early fall). If you can’t revisit a spot often, don’t worry. Once off  or once a year can tell us a story.

Duration: Most reporting takes between 5-10 minutes, but if you want to add more details, record more observations, please do so!
