Using iNaturalist on Your Next Visit to a Park

iNaturalist

Consider using iNaturalist during your next park outing to document interesting, beautiful, native, or invasive plants!

 

In fact, noting the location of invasive plants helps our Parks & Recreation department to tackle the removal of these problem plants - coordinating volunteers or professionals to remove them.

 

iNaturalist is a citizen science platform used to track, share, and identify nature observations. The app is available for download on your smartphone for free; or you can use it online from a computer.

 

Possible uses:
  • Get help identifying a plant, animal or insect in your yard
  • Track a plant or nest through the seasons
  • Report a monarch sighting
  • Help to map nature in our parks! Report your observations in our parks by adding to our project: Lansdowne Parks

 

Getting started with iNaturalist: https://www.inaturalist.org/pages/getting+started

 

iNaturalist Does More Than ID Plants, from Sierra: https://www.sierraclub.org/sierra/inaturalist-does-more-id-plants

 

Are you an iNaturalist pro? Are you interested in assisting our parks department with using iNaturalist? Please get in touch with us at LansdowneParks@gmail.com, as we are adopting this new tool for managing invasives and supporting native plants in our parks!
