About The Event
Take photos for science sake - All you need to do is download the iNaturalist app and take photos of weeds within a certain area. Instantly you will become a 'citizen scientist', since you will be collecting data for the weed map. This data is vital to understand if the invasive plants are controlled or keep coming back again and again.
You don't need to know much about plants to assist with the weed mapping. You will learn about each plant as the iNatuarlist app can identify most plants for you.
Register here if you would like to learn how to use the iNaturalist app and we will organise a workshop with you for free to ensure you become a 'natural Inaturalist'.
It is so easy and fun at the same time.
