Friday, April 10th 2020
This week, we are virtually hosting our Bioblitz event that was supposed to happen in person at the end of March. Join in by commenting on the BioBlitz Facebook post with a photo of yourself participating to be entered for a chance to win a prize!
1. Download the iNaturalist app from the app store
2. Create an account
3. Click the upper left-hand options button to join a project
4. Join Border BioBlitz 2020
5. Click the upper left-hand options button to make a new observation
6. Start cataloging species!
The app will make suggestions if you're not sure what a particular plant, animal, or insect is, and afterward, all observations are verified by ecologists! I also want to encourage younger kids to go out with a parent, be mindful of wildlife, and stay at least 6 feet away from others.
