Three steps to get started in saving and conserving species.  How these tips and tricks made me a better Naturalist

Discover the many benefits getting started in saving species with artificial

intelligence. Basic techniques that work for everyone. Interesting facts

and sure – fire ways to help you succeed. Now you can have the immersion

in nature based solutions to climate change faster than you ever imagined.

Incredibly easy method to have artificial intelligence work for all!

Biodiversity photos => Data. It is as easy as snap, share, identify.

Could this webinar be the definitive answer to taking part in the

“big picture?” We all share and co-exist on this planet. How to change

the world – participation is worth it.

This Introduction to iNaturalist workshop builds on the iNaturalist presentation to Master Naturalists – entitled “When and Where did you See What?” by Sam Kieschnick iNaturalist curator and Urban Wildlife Biologist, “An intro to iNaturalist” by cassi saari a field biologist, ecological restoration practitioner and iNaturalist curator and Patrick McCrea a wildlife ecologist along with “A brief orientation to iNaturalist” by Carrie Seltzer, PhD in ecology staff member for the iNaturalist communication network. The workshop assists with getting involved with identifications on iNaturalist, taking observations to the next level and not to worry about being self conscious or anxious about your observations, and welcoming users. We would really like to impress the group with the community aspect of how iNaturalist comes together.

It is great fun to use iNaturalist, and get engaged with an amazing group

of naturalists online, and meet some of them in-person! This is a great

social network connection for anyone who enjoys and appreciates nature.

iNaturalist is a great way to create field guides, and have a readily

available calendar to refer to. As you wander and explore the great out of

doors, often times you may have stopped to wonder what that was? The

iNaturalist is a tool that can assist you to learn and answer this very

question and discover the answer to “What is that, anyways?”

This program for National Forest Week is brought to you by the Friends

of the Saskatoon Afforestation Areas an environmental non-profit

charity that was created to preserve and restore the 326-acre Richard

St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area and the 148-acre George Genereux

Urban Regional Park. Our work reinforces the 1979 City Council decision

designating these afforestation areas on the western fringe of Saskatoon

to “be preserved in perpetuity.” They are important habitat for wildlife as

well as semi-wild public spaces for recreation and nature immersion.

The larger of these two areas is named after Richard St. Barbe Baker

(1889-1982), who has been called the “first global conservationist”

and in recognition of this he was made the first Honorary Life Member

of the World Wildlife Fund in 1969. A British forester who also

homesteaded and studied in Saskatoon, he dedicated his entire life

unfailingly to the preservation and planting of trees and forests.
