Where is the most unusual place you’ve found (and recorded) an organism? By place I don’t mean an iNat standard or community curated place or even a lat/long but rather a general place like on a bus or on a building.
I am preparing a webinar for after school staff about iNaturalist. Because this group has even fewer tech resources than teachers (and often serves younger students) my objective is to encourage observation and noting of organisms around them to overcome some of the “blindness” that we have to wilderness.
The low tech activity we will be reviewing is a bingo game of generic places where you might find an organism. (Bingo cards. There are 50 distinct cards) There are multiple ways to play, everything from a group hike and whoever finishes with a Bingo wins to you have one week to get a black out , crossing off a square by adding the taxonomic or species name.
I want to start off this section of the webinar with stories from iNatters about where they have found and observed organisms. A little back story is always fun and if possible include a link to the observation.
