How to Participate

Although it is no longer a formal program, NatureMapping can be done by anyone willing to take the time to learn about wildlife identification and able to spend time outdoors recording what they see. Students, teachers, retired people, business groups, bird watchers, outdoor enthusiasts and community activists have all participated in the NatureMapping Program. Some people seek a one-time event like a bioblitz, others want to observe and record during their weekend hikes, and the very motivated sign-up for a longer term monitoring project.

Here are a few examples of NatureMapping Projects to give you some ideas for your own projects:
