The day will be divided into three sessions. Join one or more of them:

iNat for beginners (10-11:30 am)

  1. We'll go over the basic functions found in the app, then head out to make observations.
  2. Field Explorations and plant identification (11:30 a.m-2:30 pm.),
  3. Learn the basics of plant identification and how to photograph the important features for identification.

Identifying observations on iNaturalist (2:30-4 pm) We'll head inside to explore the iNaturalist web site for adding observations as well as We'll spend time identifying he things we find--and maybe even identify other iNat users' observations.
