To unknowing passerbyers the people combing hills and fields across the world with phones in hand this weekend will look like just that — a bunch of social media addicts unable to set their devices aside even in the beauty of nature. And many of them would be wrong. From April 27 to April 30, over 70 cities around the world will be competing to see who can document the most diversity in the natural world using the iNaturalist app. Marin will be partaking in the 2018 City Nature Challenge project by capturing observations from Mt. Tamalpais Watershed Lands at Lake Lagunitas. Join the effort! The guided excursion will cover iNaturalist "how-to's" and include independent identification sessions.
If You Go:
When: Saturday, April 28 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
