1. Download the iNaturalist app from the app store

3. Click the upper left-hand options button to join a project
4. Join Border BioBlitz 2020

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.
