Nature Talk

This category is a catch-all for nature-related topics that aren’t directly related to iNaturalist. It’s not a place to get help with identifying your nature observations (that’s what iNaturalist.org is for!). Nature Talk is for discussing cool articles, organisms, ecology, community science, stories, taxonomy puns, gear discussion, etc. Basically this is a place for iNat users to discuss their nature-y interests with other folks who are into nature.
