The Prince George Citizen - - Local - Cit­i­zen staff

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.
