iNaturalist Workshop

  • J. E. and L. E. Mabee Library Special Collections Room 4301 Broadway Street San Antonio, TX, 78209 United States (map)

Join us for an iNaturalist workshop! Become a citizen scientist. iNaturalist is an online social network of people sharing biodiversity information to help each other learn about nature. It's also a crowd-sourced species identification system and an organism occurrence recording tool. You can use it to record your own observations, get help with identifications, collaborate with others to collect this kind of information for a common purpose, or access the observational data collected by iNaturalist users.

Participants will walk through what iNaturalist is, how to use it in the Texas Nature Trackers program, and how to use both the website and phone apps. The classroom portion will be followed up with a BioBlitz where we will practice using the app in the Headwaters Sanctuary, collecting and sharing data with the iNaturalist network. Three CEU credits are earned. This event is limited to 35 . Register NOW!

This workshop is presented by Dr. Tania Homayoun. Dr. Homayoun is an urban conservation biologist who is dedicated to developing and implementing conservation solutions that create biodiverse, resilient, and healthy cities and suburbs for the human and natural communities that share them. Whether working on a planning project or an outreach program, she is passionate about connecting urban residents with nature, in particular birds and native plants. Unsurprisingly, she is an avid birder and always seems to find room in her garden for one more plant.
