YOU can help us EVERY TIME you visit Tandy Hills Natural Area
We are working to documenting all living species observed at Tandy Hills Natural Area. You can be a Citizen Scientist and contribute species observations. You do not have to be able to identify the species!
Here'e how to do it
(NOTE: This document is a work in progress. We will update it with additional information and screenshots as we work with the app. Feel free to drop me a line here and I can try to answer any questions. thanks! jen - Communications chair, FoTHNA board)
Download the iNaturalist web app to your smart phone and create an account
- Allow the app to access your camera, and then use the Observe link to make an observation.
Now, everytime you visit Tandy Hills Natural Area, challenge yourself to make a few observations of any living species in the area.
- If you cannot identify your observation, that is ok! Just making the observation provides crucial data. This is a crowd-sourcing project, so other folks will be able to identify your observation later. For example, this silly observation of my wallet on a restaurant table was identified by other users. (Note: that iNaturalist is NOT for "Captive/Cultivated" things ;)
- Observations from Tandy Hills are all collected here:
- Now congratulate yourself: YOU DID SOMETHING IMPORTANT for your local Natural Area! Thank you!
