iNaturalists in Action with Julie Tuttle, Ecologist; Suzanne Cadwell, Director, UNC ITS-Teaching and Learning - Join us for this hands-on introduction to recording plant and wildlife observations with the iNaturalist mobile app and website (inaturalist.org). We'll meet in the classroom for a brief overview of the application and a discussion of photographing flora and fauna for identification. We'll then carpool to nearby Mason Farm Biological Reserve to make observations, and we'll return to the classroom at the end to take a closer look at some of them. We'll provide suggestions for recording observations on your own and contributing observations to citizen science projects. To participate, you will need to bring a digital camera, smartphone or tablet. If you experience difficulties installing the app, the instructors will be available beginning at 9:15am to assist you before the class heads out to Mason Farm.
