i’m just guessing here, but based on what you’ve written, it sounds like you want these observations at the Ozark Natural Science Center (ONSC): https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?nelat=36.26&nelng=-93.70&swlat=36.255&swlng=-93.705&user_id=adamschaffer&subview=map
… to be included in the Bear Hollow Natural Area project: https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/bear-hollow-natural-area
i’m guessing that you believe that changing the location description on these observations will allow them to be associated with the Bear Hollow Natural Area place, which will then allow these observations to be included in the place and therefore the project.
it’s worth noting that changing the location description wouldn’t associate your observations with a particular place or project. to make that kind of association, you’d actually have to make sure the coordinates of your observations fall within the boundaries of the place, which can only be done either by changing the place boundaries or by changing your observations coordinates.
that said, if you still want to change the location description on your observations, and if there’s not an existing iNat place that encompasses these observations, you can still find them using either of the following methods:
in the Edit Screen, before you select your observations to be edited:
- open up the Search section
- in the Search input field, type the location description that you used for your observations / pinned location (ex. “ONSC”), and then select “Place Name” in the dropdown menu to the right
- click the search button.
that should effectively give you back results such as you would get here:
if you didn’t use the same location description on your observations to be changed, then you might be able to find them based on a bounding box, which you could define manually in the URL or by using the appropriate NE/SW lat/long input fields (next to the place input field) in the Search section of the edit screen.
for example, if these are the observations you’re interested in: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?nelat=36.26&nelng=-93.70&swlat=36.255&swlng=-93.705&user_id=adamschaffer&subview=map
… then you could edit those observations from this URL:
by the way – i was thinking of taking a little trip to NW Arkansas when it’s just a bit warmer. i have Crystal Bridges and Bentonville town square on my potential list of stops. since it looks like you’re a local, do you have any thoughts on good natural areas or other places to visit in the area?
