Click on over to this page to easily find those observations that still need IDs. "Unknowns" won't be included in our species count so, yeah, let's get to that magic number of 1,000 unique species!

Thanks!

One more day and weather alert for Monday's events!

You all have done us proud! More than 700 species and counting! WOOHOO! Great job!

Reminder that while all observations must be made between April 30 and May 3 you can still upload observations taken on those days until May 9th at midnight. Look at your observations to see if you can submit them a second time showing the second species in the photo. Bee AND the flower it is on- use the same photo but list the second one under the other species.

Monday events!
Laurel Run Park is not a place you want to get caught in during a large rainfall or high winds. Organized hike CANCELLED.

Sycamore Shoals CANCELLED. SORRY!

City Nature Challenge 2021!

We are busy making plans for training sessions, CNC events and suggested observation sites for this year's City Nature Challenge!

If you have a group which would benefit from a training session, let me know and we'll do our best to hook you up! We still need more volunteers to lead hikes or simply be on site at certain areas should new iNat users have questions. If you can help, contact me! Thanks! Mel
