Conservation Conversations - Conservation, Recreation and... Citizen Science?

Monday, April 26, 2021

Citizen science is dramatically changing the way researchers perceive and study the natural world. It’s no longer just about data, but has instead become a global phenomenon with people introducing citizen science into their everyday recreation.

This presentation will dive into some of the recent trends and discoveries that iNaturalist enthusiasts are contributing to science and conservation by taking photos of flora and fauna.

Just in time for the City Nature Challenge (April 30 to May 3), join us for this webinar and be inspired to explore your local environment as a citizen scientist.

Free registration is required to attend.
