Texas Nature Trackers Workshop

July 23, 2016 @ 8:30 am - 2:00 pm

This workshop at an east Austin location will introduce you to the iNaturalist platform and how Texas Parks & Wildlife is using it to support research and conservations efforts. The goal of the workshop is to teach participants how you can be more proficient at creating observations with photos and sound recordings. Use of the iNaturalist app will be demonstrated, along with tips to improve the quality of your observations. In addition, learn strategies to efficiently add GPS coordinates to your photos, and to create observations based on the metadata already attached to your photos. Participants will have the opportunity to practice by making observations in the field, followed by a demonstration of tools for identifying your observations.

After the field portion, if you have a laptop, you can practice uploading and identifying your observations with more experienced iNatters on hand to answer questions.

Schedule:
8:30 am: Introduction and presentation
10:00 am: Make field observations (Bring a hat and wear suitable clothing/shoes)
11:30 am: Practical demonstration: Post and validate observations.

Registrants will be sent further information about downloading the app and setting up an iNaturalist account.

Registration fee: $10
