This major section of our Web site is devoted to weekly updates about phenology at Hilton Pond Center for Piedmont Natural History. "Phenology" is the study of change in nature--including the unfolding of seasons and the sometimes subtle ways in which plants, animals, and habitats respond to different photoperiods, variations in temperature, and other biotic and abiotic factors.

Nearly every week Bill Hilton Jr. (right), executive director of Hilton Pond Center, writes and photographs an interesting story about some plant, animal, habitat, or natural phenomenon. Text and numerous color photos entertain, educate, and delight the eye. Many classroom and nature center educators use This Week at Hilton Pond as an authoritative reference source or for curriculum enrichment, and we hear frequently from "students" of ALL ages pre-school through senior citizens that This Week is among the most entertaining and informative nature writing available anywhere--on-line or in print (see Awards, Honors & Kudos).

  • "This Hilton Pond Web site is the best birding and nature page on the Web." --Joe McMahon, Webmaster, Scioto Valley (OH) Bird and Nature Club
