DLIA's Biodiversity Days iNaturalist Workshop
Join us for an iNaturalist Workshop
Friday, June 19
Twin Creeks Science Center *
1 pm - 4 pm
iNaturalist is an online social network of people sharing biodiversity information to help each other learn about nature. It’s also a crowdsourced 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.
Free iNaturalist Training Session Available, Friday, June 19:
Come learn about iNaturalist from Jonathan Carpenter, iNaturalist expert. There will be a short introduction followed by a chance to get outside and use iNaturalist in “the field”. The workshop will then move back indoors so participants can learn about uploading their field observations and other tasks in iNaturalist.
iNaturalist will be utilized in our upcoming two Bioblitzes for 2015:
9 a.m. - 6 p.m., Saturday, June 20 and July 11 – It’s totally FREE and we invite everyone (no experience necessary) to join us to celebrate the importance of biodiversity formally through the BioBlitz! Registration required. Call 865-430-4756 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
* The Twin Creeks Science and Education Center is located at Great Smoky Mountains National Park Research area about a mile or so up the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail from Gatlinburg, TN.
DLIA’s mission is to discover and understand America’s species through science and education for conservation. DLIA’s flagship project, the ATBI, is a joint effort with the National Park System to identify and record every single species within the Park. To date, DLIA has added an astonishing 8,095 new species to the park’s records, and an even more astonishing 951 species new to science.
