Participating in “citizen” or “community” science is one way to discover the wonders of nature on your own, while contributing to the scientific understanding of our ecoregion. Enjoy walks with the iNaturalist app, or contribute to community snow observations in the winter. For our full list of upcoming events, please view our calendar.
iNaturalist is a website and app that helps you identify the plants and animals around you. When you record your observations by sharing a picture or video with the organization, you are contributing data for scientists to understand nature in specific locations. Download the app and contribute to local and international projects while learning about the organisms you can find at the Highlands Center. Check back soon to learn how to contribute to a Highlands Center Project.
