Join us as we explore the wetland and contribute to a growing biodiversity database on NWALT-conserved properties.
NWALT staff will lead a walk through Wilson Springs Preserve, Fayetteville’s largest wet-prairie remnant, in order to look for plants, animals and fungi. No expertise is necessary for this family-friendly hike! Bring your smartphone (or camera) and mud boots. The program will begin with a brief tutorial about how to use iNaturalist.
iNaturalist is an online community dedicated to documenting the diversity of life in our world. Users capture photos or sounds of living organisms and submit to the worldwide database, where other users collaborate to reach an accurate identification. NWALT is using iNaturalist as a tool for collecting biodiversity data on its preserves, while also providing a new way to for people to explore and connect to nature.
