Hi all, thanks in advance. New to iNaturalist but using it for work and trying to create projects for each of my organization’s nature Preserves which are then under one larger Umbrella Project for the whole organization. While these preserves are on the physical map layer they aren’t recognized by the Place search engine. I have gotten the message that I need 50 verifiable observations to add a new Place so I spent some time this weekend and today observing lots of really cool species on our lands.
I just reached 51 observations this afternoon but I haven’t been able to add any new places yet, still receiving the same message that I don’t have enough verifiable observations. In order for observations to be verifiable does a certain amount of time need to pass? Or do they need to be research grade observations?
Thank you to anyone who’s a little more versed in this website than I am! It’s truly a marvel and I’m excited to be working with it this field season!
