Naturalists club exploring nature with new app
The Prince George Naturalists Club is hosting a special field trip on Saturday to learn about using an app called iNaturalist where participants can record their observations, share their discoveries with like-minded people and then discuss findings.
The information gathered through the app will be shared to a common scientific data base like Global Biodiversity Information Facility that is accessible to scientists so they can use the information submitted.
To participate in the field trip to a nearby provincial park, meet at Spruceland under the Save-On sign at 10:30 a.m. Bring a smartphone or camera, notepad and pen and anything else required for a trip to the woods like water and a snack. Wear suitable clothing for the weather.
The trip will be completed by no later than 4 p.m. There is space for 15 people and open to members and non-members of the local naturalists club.
