Updated Park Boundaries and 1575 species.

I'm about 3 years late but I just updated the boundaries used by the project to be more inclusive of the viewshed and R/Ws surrounding the park, as well as the additional acreage the Town added in early 2020. Also I resigned from my position as caretaker in early 2019 but I still live right down the road, which is why I don't do anything with this project anymore other than submit cool things I see in the ditch along the road.

Also, the official list is over 1575 species! This is...

Wildflowers of the NJ Pinelands - 2021 Update

Had this saved in my drafts and realized I never posted it! So here's the final chapter of my Pinelands adventure, and time working in NJ, which lasted from April 2018 - January 2022.

The deeper I delve into the remote and rarely visited portions of the Pinelands, the harder it's become to find additional species to check off the list! But despite this challenge, 2021 was another year of discoveries.

I spent more time exploring the coastal portions of the ...

Changes to Oregon rare plant, fungi, and lichen lists

Hello fellow iNaturalists,

The Oregon Biodiversity Information Center has recently updated its rare species lists for vascular and non-vascular plants, fungi, and lichen. Several species were added and a few were dropped (due to taxonomic issues, being too common, mis-IDs, etc).

Please don't harass people over 'blurry' photos or photos taken from vehicles.

Please don't harass people over 'blurry' photos or photos taken from vehicles.

Firstly, there is no rule against it, anyone is free to add photos of organisms regardless of their perceived quality. This isn't bug guide, no one is 'frassing' or deleting other people's photos, and there's a reason bugguide is tiny compared to iNat.

Secondly, and more importantly, it's very exclusionary. You may not mean it as such, but it can be very ableist and sometimes classist as well. ...

Wildlife Habitat Signage

Grovedale Garden front yard

We highly recommend installing a simple "Wildlife Habitat" sign if you are planning to convert a good portion of your yard from turf grass to wildflowers, forbs, shrubs, etc. It's pretty easy to attain one and it becomes a clear definition of what is going on with this yard, especially for those who really only value turf grass and may take steps to sabotage...
