Plant Tulips This Fall for Journey North

It's time to dig in! This fall, plant a Journey North Tulip Garden so you can proclaim the official arrival of spring in your community. By sharing observations over the Internet, students across North America will follow the wave of spring as it moves northward and measure its pace from distant places.

International Science Project
These tulips will be the focus of an international science project in which students investigate the relationship between geography, temperature and the arrival of spring. In the past, science students shared data with laboratory partners or maybe with a classroom of students. Using the Internet, these students will share their results with students across the continent.

Join The Fun!
This fall, hundreds of students will plant their gardens according to the same guidelines. Then they'll register their garden in Journey North's official Tulip Garden Registry. When the tulips bloom in the spring, the news will be shared with classmates across North America as part of the Journey North program.

How To Participate

Happy Planting!
At the end of the planting season in early December, we'll post a list of all official Journey North gardens. You can then make contact with a partner school and arrange to exchange predictions and data.

News from Journey North gardens will be posted on Fridays from February until June, 1997. You'll be able to chart spring's journey across North America to your own backyard!
