We're doing great!!

We’re now three and a half days into our 9 day iNaturalist competition and things are going great!

  • In Lunenburg, our community rep, Rachel Kendall, led a group of all ages as they explored a wetland and collected lots of iNaturalist observations!
  • In Annapolis, Dr. Nick Hill and the Clean Annapolis River Project led a facinating exploration of the sand barrens ecosystem!
  • In Clare, we learned how to make beer from seaweed from our community rep, Dan and we saw over 150 bank swallow burrows!
  • In Argyle, we were joined by members of the Nova Scotia Invasive Species Council and we saw a bunch of Green Crabs!
    Don’t forget, there are still walks being held in Digby, Yarmouth, Shelburne, Barrington and Queens! Sign up here: https://forms.office.com/r/YRBqM9wg7P

On top of the success of these walks, we’ve also been collecting awesome data! As of this post, just under 100 people have helped us collect nearly 1750 observations and 700 species, including some rare and invasive ones! Some stand-outs are Black Ash, Eastern White Cedar and even some Monarch Butterflies!

So far, Lunenburg is leading the way with 233 observed species while Digby (196) and Annapolis (172) are in second and third. At an individual level, Mark Dennis has already observed 102 species by himself followed closely by Heather Haughn (100) and Jeff White (83)!

If you’d like more information about one of the walks, please email us at Nick.Knutson@merseytobeatic.ca!

Thank you so much to everyone who’s out there collecting observations! What a beautiful week!
