How to change the world – participation is worth it.

This Introduction to iNaturalist workshop builds on the iNaturalist presentation to Master Naturalists – entitled “When and Where did you See What?” by Sam Kieschnick iNaturalist curator and Urban Wildlife Biologist, “An intro to iNaturalist” by cassi saari a field biologist, ecological restoration practitioner and iNaturalist curator and Patrick McCrea a wildlife ecologist along with “A brief orientation to iNaturalist” by Carrie Seltzer, PhD in ecology staff member for the iNaturalist communication network. The workshop assists with getting involved with identifications on iNaturalist, taking observations to the next level and not to worry about being self conscious or anxious about your observations, and welcoming users. We would really like to impress the group with the community aspect of how iNaturalist comes together.

It is great fun to use iNaturalist, and get engaged with an amazing group of naturalists online, and meet some of them in-person! This is a great social network connection for anyone who enjoys and appreciates nature. iNaturalist is a great way to create field guides, and have a readily available calendar to refer to. As you wander and explore the great out of doors, often times you may have stopped to wonder what that was? The iNaturalist is a tool that can assist you to learn and answer this very question and discover the answer to “What is that, anyways?”

This program for National Forest Week is brought to you by the Friends of the Saskatoon Afforestation Areas an environmental non-profit charity that was created to preserve and restore the 326-acre Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area and the 148-acre George Genereux Urban Regional Park. Our work reinforces the 1972 City Council decision designating these afforestation areas on the western fringe of Saskatoon to “be preserved in perpetuity.” They are important habitat for wildlife as well as semi-wild public spaces for recreation and nature immersion. The larger of these two areas is named after Richard St. Barbe Baker (1889-1982), who has been called the “first global conservationist” and in recognition of this he was made the first Honorary Life Member of the World Wildlife Fund in 1969. A British forester who also homesteaded and studied in Saskatoon, he dedicated his entire life unfailingly to the preservation and planting of trees and forests.
