Exploring Local Biodiversity with iNaturalist

The City Nature Challenge: Triangle Area, April 14-18, is a national competition between cities to see who can collect the most plant and animal observations on the iNaturalist app. We want the Triangle to win, and you can help!

Join us in the SECU Daily Planet Theater for a lively talk by Chris Goforth, Head of Citizen Science at the Museum. Chris will talk briefly about our local biodiversity and teach us how to use the smartphone app, iNaturalist. After her talk, we’ll all go outside the Museum to use the app to record observations. Download the app to a smartphone before you visit to get ready to help the Triangle Area win the City Nature Challenge!
