— iNaturalist City Nature Challenge — Virtual Meeting
Speaker: Brian Shrock
Main Talk: iNaturalist City Nature Challenge
iNaturalist, a citizen science project has grown in popularity across the world. iNaturalist users make observations with a phone or pc, beginning with pictures they've taken of plants, animals, or other forms of life. The community helps identify and confirm the identity of the observation, bringing it as close to a species level ID as they can. This data can reveal migratory patterns, the spread of invasive species, and changes in populations. We'll talk about how Oasis can get involved in this, and about the City Nature Challenge coming at the end of April this year
Musician: Jay Bee Zay
