BioBlitz with Linda Loring Nature Foundation
June 1 – July 30
Linda Loring Nature Foundation
Discover the nature around you while practicing physical distancing
Outdoor activities are limited to self-guided possibilities so Linda Loring Nature Foundation is launching the first LLNF BioBlitz for Nantucket – physical distancing in nature.
Using a public, free app (iNaturalist) take photos of cool things in nature on your daily walks and share them with the community. Then, you can check out the maps online for what other people have seen and where. Learn about the creatures and plants that you see; you don’t even have to know what anything is! Take a good, quality photo, and iNaturalist’s community members of scientists and nature enthusiasts will identify it for you! You’ll end up with a list of what you’ve seen during this time – while watching spring emerge on Nantucket!
