Workshop: How and Why to Use iNaturalist with Hannah Floyd

Jan 17, 2024 6:00PM—7:00PM



Cost $0.00


Do you like using Merlin to help you identify bird songs or record what you observe on eBird? Learn to use iNaturalist to help you identify and report all the other interesting organisms you see out there!

iNaturalist helps you to identify and document species.

Join Hannah Floyd, a freshman in the Ecology & Evolutionary Biology department at Princeton University and lifetime Boulder resident, for a virtual interactive workshop on the basics and importance of iNaturalist on Wednesday, Jan 17. iNaturalist is an online, crowdsourced scientific database where users from across the world can submit and corroborate data.

We will start with the basics: how to get on the app, how to explore the global database, and how to contribute valuable data. iNaturalist has some similarities with eBird, but also some important differences, which we will dissect.

No experience is necessary; all are welcome to participate!

CFO is in the process of scheduling iNaturalist-focused field trips for later this year so you can follow up with what you learned in this online workshop!

This workshop is online. The virtual meeting link will be sent to the email you provide when you register. Please double-check you received this email and save the link to use for the presentation.


 Hannah Floyd, a student in the Ecology & Evolutionary Biology department at Princeton University and a lifetime Boulder resident, has over 5,400 observations in iNaturalist.
