Now through May 24th, 2020
Welcome to the BREATHE BioBlitiz!
A month-long nature scavenger hunt brought to you by the BREATHE Sustainability Committee. Every week we’ll be announcing a category of wildlife for you to search for in your community and every week you participate, you’ll be entered into a raffle to win awesome prizes!
To participate in the BREATHE BioBlitz, create an account on the iNaturalist app or visit the iNaturalist website. Under projects, search for the BREATHE BioBlitz and click “Join”. Once you’ve joined the project, all the observations you log in the next month will automatically be shared in the BioBlitz!
To record an observation, go to the “Observe” tab. Take a picture of what you’re trying to observe/identify or select a picture from your camera roll then click “Next.” iNaturalist will give you suggestions for a possible identification. Feel free to explore your options and make your best guess, but don’t stress about needing to be right. Once you press “Share”, your observation will be shared with the BREATHE BioBlitz and the iNaturalist community!
