Wanted to invite those in the iNaturalist community who are interested in hearing more about the use of iNat data to a webinar we’re hosting next week - hope some of you will join us! Just a note that the webinar registration is full (or close to full), but it will be live streamed on YouTube at the same time and we’ll be monitoring the chat there to bring questions into the webinar.
The Community Science team at the California Academy of Sciences would like to invite you to join us for a webinar “Community-powered biodiversity conservation: how your observations can guide management on the California coast”.
Over the last decade, tens of thousands of community scientists and volunteer naturalists together have collected hundreds of thousands of observations of biodiversity up and down the California coast. Boosted by community science campaigns such as Snapshot Cal Coast and crowdsourced via the iNaturalist platform, these community-contributed observations now represent one of the largest and fastest-growing datasets of biodiversity available in real-time and throughout the California coast.
In this Webinar, we will share how this somewhat messy but incredibly rich stream of information can be translated into timely insights useful to manage and conserve biodiversity on our coast. Join us to learn how your volunteer observations are now more crucial than ever to safeguard biodiversity on our beloved coast.
When: Thursday February 25, 2021 02:00 PM Pacific Time (US and Canada)
