iNaturalist Walks in Kespukwitk

During our Kespukwitk Municipal iNaturalist Competition we will be hosting walks in each municipality to get you outside and familiar with Nova Scotia’s spectacular wildlife. We will explore the area in a group as we observe, discuss and share stories about the wildlife we see. These walks are open to all, including families, and do not require any previous knowledge or special vehicle requirements to access. If you would like to join us, you must register here.

During the walk, we will include a brief introduction to the species identification and recording app, iNaturalist. We recommend everyone download the app to their phone and create an account before arriving. (You may also opt to upload photos online at iNaturalist.ca after the walk.)

Don't forget to register for individual walks and be eligible for prizes during the competition! Remember that anyone can contribute to this project by simply posting observations to iNaturalist - you do not have to be part of an organized walk. You can explore your backyard and areas in your neighbourhood. You can also visit the areas blitzed during the group walks before or after these organized events.

Have fun and stay safe.
