Join us for a community event with films, food and fun on April 6 as the City of Boulder, Boulder County, and the WILD Foundation kick off Earth Month with the launch of our citizen science initiative on iNaturalist. It’s no secret that Boulder County is home to some of the most diverse wildlife in all of Colorado. At least 59 mammal species, over 100 breeding bird species, more than 200 butterfly species, and countless reptiles, amphibians, and insects have been documented to date.
Now that we know who some of our wild neighbors are, how can we better manage their habitats so these species can thrive? The answer lies within our community: YOU can help us safeguard local wildlife! We’ll show you how to use iNaturalist and create your own collection of wildlife sightings – a life list. With more people outside taking pictures, entering notes and geographic locations, and uploading to our iNaturalist project, each participant will assist open space employees by showing them what types of wild animals are found right here in Boulder County. Be warned: it can become addicting!
