Be part of this special edition of MLK Jr. Day of Service and discover how you can become a community scientist and contribute to parks and beyond! 

Come learn more about how community science is a movement to empower everyone to participate in building better knowledge to care for the world around us. Gain insight into community science projects throughout the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and find out how you can participate from your own home and neighborhood.  

This program will provide an introduction to  iNaturalist, including  observation, identification, and annotation to get ready for the Golden Gate National Parks MLK Day of Service Virtual Bioblitz. We will send you off with information about the amazing animals, plants, and fungi that you can observe in the parks and near your home this time of year. We will also cover tricks for  smartphone nature photography, attracting nature to your home, engaging young naturalists, and have some thought-provoking discussion of natural history in our cities and community sciences in our lives. 

Join us and get ready to see the world around you in an entirely different way!
