April Photo-Observation of the Month Winner

The April photo-observation of the month by popular vote was The Scribbler. Check it out at The caterpillars of this tiny geometrid moth feed on alders, birches, maples, and willows. The adults can be found from April into early June. Congratulations to iNaturalist Vermont moth fanatic Joanne Russo and thanks to all of you for sharing your sightings on iNaturalist Vermont, a project of the Vermont Atlas of Life. You might be a May winner. Get outside and explore, discover and capture those biodiversity moments!

Adding Forgotten Observations

We have noticed many iNaturalist observations in Vermont are not getting assigned to the iNaturalist Vermont project. Many of us simply forget to add it to the project. In the early days, we curators invited those records into the project, one at a time. Now there are hundreds waiting for an invitation. Why wait? To see if you have observations that need to be brought into the project, follow this simple procedure:
