Learn how to use iNaturalist so you can participate in the City Nature Challenge! This brief intro will walk you through how to use the iNaturalist smartphone app and website and help you make your first observation. This is a drop-in program — no need to pre-register! Meet in the Outdoor Classroom.
Consider joining us on the Biodiversity Walk immediately after this program to practice using your new skills!
Dress for the weather and wear closed-toed shoes. Bring a camera (your phone or any other camera you have, or plan to borrow one from us) and a water bottle. Come with iNaturalist pre-loaded on your phone if you are planning to use the smartphone app to make your observations.
This program is part of the City Nature Challenge: Triangle Area 2018. The City Nature Challenge is an international competition between urban areas to see who can document the most species on iNaturalist (an online wildlife observation platform) from April 27-30, 2018. Help the Triangle Area show off how amazing our biodiversity and citizen scientists are by photographing species you see and uploading them to iNaturalist!
