week 3: Kendall-Frost marsh

We started off our week 3 field trip to Kendall Frost marsh by trying to guess the name of this mysterious specimen from the San Diego Natural History Museum's Nature to You loan program.

It was a state and federally endangered

CNPS-SLO Event iNaturalist Outdoor Training Workshop #1 January 28 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

There was interest from CNPS-SLO in doing an iNaturalist hike to show people who are not familiar with the platform how to use it and tips.

I will be hosting this event, and it will be in Irish Hills.

I don't know how many people will attend - it could be 2, or it could be 40. RSVP was not required.

If anyone local to SLO here on iNat would like to attend and help newer users one on one, please stop by.

Aside from the basics, let me know if there is anythi...

week 2: Dike Rock tide pools

We spent our week 2 field trip at one of my favorite locations, Dike Rock tide pools. We narrowly missed
one of the biggest cliff collapses in recent years. Make sure to give the cliffs plenty of space, especially after heavy rain.

I pointed out a partially submerged rock as we walked from the pier to the tide pools. As we observed together, there were no sea stars visible on this rock. Back w...

January 27 - Species Changes

Slaty Skimmer

The January 5 Journal elicited some observations and a question regarding Slaty Skimmer from jheiser. This got me thinking a bit (I do read all the comments!) The first Ohio Slaty Skimmer was observed in 1896 (Osburn, Erie Co), so it been around for a while, albeit in low numbers few and far between.

This began to change to change in the 1990's when we started to see a few every year. The big increase began in 2017 with the start of the statewide survey.

Rosary Pea

The Rosary Pea (Abrus precatorius) is a small, climbing vine that is native to tropical regions of Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean. It is a popular ornamental plant due to its bright red and black seeds, which are often used in jewelry and other decorative items. However, the plant also has a dangerous side, as the seeds contain a toxic compound called abrin, which can cause serious illness or death if ingested.

The Rosary Pea is a perennial plant that can grow up to 20 feet long...

Last chance to submit comments to save Liberty Hill

With few days left to submit, I've put together simplified instructions. I also keep gathering more photos and data of this incredible place, with a lot of help from other people who really care.

Here is a new version of the video, taking advantage of additional drone shots of the meadow and a ton more wildflowers.

Texas: my first visit to South Padre Island and the Rio Grande Valley

*
I just got back from my first ever iNatting trip to Texas. It was supposed to be 8 days but we lost half of the first 24 hours because we were unable to land at Brownsville due to severe fog and so we had to return to the Dallas / Fort Worth Airport and spend the night there, awake and uncomfortable. We were a group of five people, headed up by Steve Rosenthal, who is a very keen sheller from Long Island in New York State. During the Texas trip, all five of us stayed on South Padre...

3 mil identificaciones

Hoy, 27 de enero 2023, con un año y cuatro días desde que conocí iNaturalist, llego a las tres mil identificaciones. No es nada fácil. Dedica tiempo y conocimientos. No empecé a identificar al mismo tiempo que entré en esta red ya que no sabía cómo funcionaba. Recién cuando me instalé la aplicación en Octubre 2022 entendí cómo se hacía.
