Wildlife Species Identification with iNaturalist

Wildlife Species Identification with iNaturalist Online

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 users snapped a pic of the wild plant, animal, fungi, etc. But not everyone can ID the organism they found!

The iNaturalist community works together to identify observed wildlife down to the species level. Data like these are useful to ecology researchers, urban planners, park rangers, and more! This workshop will familiarize you with the iNaturalist species identification process, and the resources available to you for species identification.

Last in a series of workshops to prepare attendees to participate in the City Nature Challenge 2021: Pioneer Valley.
