Nature Walk and Wildlife Identification with iNaturalist

Nature Walk and Wildlife Identification with iNaturalist

This workshop will take us into natural areas near campus to photograph and identify wildlife using the iNaturalist app. The iNaturalist app is a free tool for engaging with the world around us. It lets anyone participate in an international Community and Citizen Science effort to track and map the wildlife that exists everywhere, even in the most urban environments. The app records the date, time, and location you snapped a pic of the wild plant, animal, fungi, etc. that caught your attention. This workshop is meant to familiarize you with using the app outside. By the end of this workshop you will have walked for a minimum of a half hour and submitted at least one new observation through iNaturalist. Please wear appropriate footwear and clothing. Second in a series of three workshops to prepare attendees to participate in the City Nature Challenge 2020: Pioneer Valley.
