OFNC members are also invited to participate in the Canadian Wildlife Federation’s webinar on identifying observations on iNaturalist on April 27th.

iNaturalist has become one of the world’s most popular nature apps and the Canadian Wildlife Federation has led the charge in bringing it to Canada. But the strength behind iNaturalist is thanks to a wonderful community of people contributing observations and identifications.
An observation of a species is most valuable when it comes along with an accurate species ID. And to help with that, thousands of people play an extremely valuable role, helping identify observations across Canada. This webinar will not be teaching how to identify a species, but you don’t have to be an expert to contribute: you can probably tell the difference between an American Robin and a Blue Jay or a squirrel from a chipmunk. But you can be an expert, helping to distinguish between species like an Orange-belted Bumblebee and a Red-belted Bumblebee.
