Do you want to contribute to citizen science while also learning more about the natural world around you? Join a Prairie Ridge staff member for a nature walk as we work to document as much of Prairie Ridge’s biodiversity as we can for our Fall BioBlitz! During this program we’ll take a leisurely walk around the property while looking for a variety of lifeforms and photographing and submitting as many entries as possible to iNaturalist, the citizen science platform where our BioBlitz data will be collected. No prior natural history knowledge or iNaturalist experience is required — just bring your excitement and willingness to learn!
This program is intended for adults and teens. Please bring a phone (downloading the free iNaturalist app ahead of time is helpful) or camera, which you will use to take photos during the program. We recommend dressing for the weather, wearing closed-toed shoes and bringing a water bottle. We will meet at the entrance kiosk just inside our green entrance gates.
