Important video to watch RE: iNaturalist!

So, if you've got a free 20 min or so, you really need to watch @kueda 's commencement keynote about iNaturalist:

I'm sure happy to be in this community with so many of my friends -- some I've met in person, others I've met just online -- but we all share that enjoyment by engaging with nature. :)

Short notice -- afternoon bioblitz at Ladd Nature Preserve in Duncanville! Thursday, Nov 16, 2-5 pm!

Hey all!

A bit of a short notice announcement, but we're planning on a bioblitz/biosurvey next week Thursday (Nov 16) at Ladd Nature Preserve in Duncanville. Two of the new urban wildlife biologists from Austin and San Antonio are coming up, and we're wanting to show them how we conduct and participate in a biosurvey. They're relatively new to iNat as well, so some of it will be just showing how to use the tool.

If you're able to come, cool! It is during somewhat odd hours -- 2 to 5 PM on Thursday... I fully recognize that it won't work for everyone, but if you've got some time free and watch to come and catch some bugs or look at plants or chase after birds with us, please come!

Also, it looks like it may be rainy -- we'll still plan on doing it in the rain (bring boots and umbrella)! :)

If you have any questions or concerns, let me know. It's open to anyone and everyone!
