Take a hike on the wildflower-strewn hills of Marshall Mesa to give thanks for the bees, beetles, butterflies, hummingbirds, moths and flies that do so much work to fill our world with color and good things to eat. Naturalists Dave Sutherland from OSMP and Melanie Hill from the WILD Foundation will share stories about the marvels of pollination, and provide information and basic training in the Wild Boulder citizen science program on iNaturalist so you can photographically document pollination in your own back yard and contribute to the program’s digital wildlife catalog. Bring a camera or cell phone if you have one– close up lens encouraged.
Join the iNaturalsit project here. You can download the free app to your phone, and begin posting wildlife observations on the Boulder County Wildlife project. Or upload your wildlife photos from a camera and help build a dataset of Boulder's wildlife to help scientists.
