Happy 10th iNat Anniversary to Me!

Ten years ago tonight, after arriving home from attending a meeting of the El Camino Real Texas Master Naturalist, I entered my first iNat observation. I think the speaker at the program was Jonah Evans of Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. He mentioned the use of iNat, a website I had investigated a couple of weeks earlier upon the suggestion of my sister.
After that night, I have classified myself as an iNat additct.
The iNaturalist community is awesome!

Wow, and soon you'll hit 40,000 observations! That's about 11 observations per day for 10 years. Amazing!

Wow! 10 years! It must have been such a different world here back then. Wish I'd joined sooner but glad I'm here now.

And thank you for the post, I've checked myself and found that I joined iNat exactly 5 years ago.

Curious if during the future big Milam surveyy, regions have been identified having been less impacted by agriculture, industry, housing exist in Milam County. Unique plants postential.

@rbrtmck1962 To what big Milam County survey do you refer?

Posted by connlindajo 8 months ago

Howdy Linda,
During the November Camino Real Naturalist meeting, discussion noted a county wide survey of plants starting in perhaps March.
All who wander may not be lost,

@rbrtmck1962 OK, now I associate the iNat name with the person. Sorry for my memory lapse. As far as I know, we intend to survey places that have not been impacted critically by recent agriculture, mining, urbanization, etc. We will begin the project in earnest in January, but if you know of any suitable places accessible in Milam County (including yours) let us know. This is expected to be at least of two year project with multiple visits to each site. Hope to talk to you more at the next ECR meeting.

We Decentennialist iNaturalists are a proud club! We were making iNat observations while mammoths still roamed Texas, even before the continents split up, before.... Well, perhaps I exaggerate just a little.
