The Watershed Project is launching two projects on iNaturalist: Pollinator Power and Backyard Birding. These projects are a collaborative effort to collect useful and interesting observations on pollinators and birds in your backyard. Participation in community science projects such as these are a great way to stay in tune and involved with nature. Your observations will contribute to a greater understanding and awareness of local bird and pollinator species. We are here to help you interpret your data collection and share findings of our own. Click on the links above to explore these projects on iNaturalist!
Instructions: To add an observation to one of our projects, first make an account with iNaturalist and join the project or projects you’d like to contribute to. Then, simply take a photo of the bird or pollinator you’ve sighted, add the photo as an observation in your iNaturalist account, and then within that observation you’ll be able to select which project or projects you’d like to add it to.
