> The Seattle City Nature Challenge begins on Friday!
> Thank you to everyone who has shown interest and enthusiasm for this citizen science project. I hope we can make Seattle's first participation a roaring success.
> Participating is EASY:
> 1. Download iNaturalist to your phone (iOS and Android)*
> 2. April 14-18 take photos of anything in nature and add them as observations to iNaturalist
> 3. Repeat, repeat, repeat
> *Note, you can also do this on a desktop through the iNaturalist website.
> You can add observations at any time, it doesn't have to be the moment you take the photo. But to count towards our total numbers for this bioblitz, they must be submitted to iNaturalist by April 22nd.
> Likewise, observations without an identification by April 22nd will not add to our total biodiversity, so please contribute identifications if you are able and willing.
> Our 'area' is Seattle and including surrounding cities north through Shoreline and Bothell, east through Bellevue and south through Kent.
> There is a folder with resources such as book list, iNaturalist handouts and video tutorials on using iNaturalist. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B2DtnDtnSLenaTV5bzdXTE9KY0k
> Come to the event launch on Thursday, April 13 at 7pm at Machine House Brewery in Georgetown. I will have handouts on using iNaturalist, a laptop to make an account and answer any questions about the City Nature Challenge. I also have an urban nature photography show on display at Machine House Brewery.
> Please share on social media as much as possible during the week leading up to, and during the bioblitz. Twitter hashtags #CityNatureChallenge and #CNCSeattle.
> Don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.
> Thank you everyone and good luck!
