Course description

Learn about iNaturalist, a community science platform and global network of people like you making observations of their local nature. See how amateurs and professionals alike are sharing their observations of flora and fauna, getting help with species identification, and using iNaturalist data for conservation planning, nature education, monitoring, and research.

This live, online workshop is for anyone new to using iNaturalist such as educators, stewards, professionals, or the general public. We'll go over how to most effectively use the mobile app and website, including indoor and outdoor classroom instruction.
