On September, 20, 2020, people around the world will go out to explore their own, local rivers together with their peers, friends, and family, thereby enlarging their local network of people that care about rivers. In the following week, it is time to identify the observed species with help of the global iNaturalist community. On September 28, we will recap the day with various specialists, zooming into some remarkable observations as well as discussing new ways to relate to our local river wildlife.
Create an iNaturalist account, download the app, join the “project,” and then head outside where you live to your closest river or stream to collect data for this global home river bioblitz.
