Meet Lynn Smith at the Peterborough Zoo parking lot on Water Street at 8am and then head to Harper Park.
Today you will learn how to use the App called iNaturalist and become a Citizen Scientist in Harper Park!
A project has been set up within iNaturalist to collate all observations from the Park.
This information will provide a baseline of biodiversity within Harper Park and monitor changes.
If possible (no worries if you don’t):
1) Download the free iNaturalist app from the App Store beforehand
2) Bring a cellphone and/or camera
3) Bring binoculars
Wear boots and dress for the weather.
We’ll practice inputting our observations as we hike the trails within Harper Park.
The terrain is rough and uneven in places so Accessibility ranges from easy along the paths to more challenging. You have the choice to explore in the area of your comfort zone.
