“iNaturalist: The Citizen Scientist’s Best Friend” Webinar
Mohonk Preserve staff have long been documenting natural history observations on the Shawangunk Ridge, with an emphasis on recording phenology (the timing of nature’s life cycles like spring bird arrivals and first blooms). Methods of preserving these records have changed over time, from files of index cards to internal databases. Now we’ve taken the next step to record observations through iNaturalist, an online app and data portal where you can identify species and share findings with researchers globally. Learn how you can help Conservation staff keep track of what’s happening on the Ridge using iNaturalist as a tool to engage with wildlife every day. This is a free program with a suggested fee of $10 to help support the Preserve’s environmental education and scholarship programs. Registration is required. Important: Your access link will be provided within the confirmation e-mail.
