Science in the Park: iNaturalist Project

Become part of a worldwide team of outdoor lovers as we photograph and record the plants and animals of James River Park on iNaturalist, a website that is creating a “living record of life on Earth” (read about iNaturalist).

Your digital photographs and sound file records will document the species in the Park, but don’t worry if you are not an expert in photography or species identification. Beginners welcome and encouraged, and this is a great resource for teachers!
