Summary

Changes in the timing of the seasons in Alaska influences our wild berry flowering, pollination, ripening and fruit dispersal (including by us berry pickers). Dr. Katie Spellman and Dr. Christa Mulder will discuss the ongoing research by the UAF International Arctic Research Center and Institute of Arctic Biology that explores how earlier springs, warmer summers and wetter falls influence our amazing Alaska berries throughout their life cycles. Learn how public participation in this scientific research is helping improve our knowledge of ways berries are changing across our state.
