Have you ever wondered just what animal or plant you saw while out enjoying nature, but weren’t sure where to start? Would you like to contribute to science while out on your nature walks? There’s an app for that! In this popular class offered seasonally at Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve, naturalist staff will guide you through different phone applications you can use to learn more about your surroundings. We will learn how to use free apps such as iNaturalist, eBird and Minnesota Wildflower Search. We will also learn how to get great photos from just using our cell phones. Once we learn the basics, we will go on a nature hike to observe and identify the plants and animals we see, as well as try out some new photography tricks. Wear closed-toe shoes and dress for the weather.

Registration is also available through Cedar Creek for those who do not need Advanced Training hours. PLEASE DO NOT REGISTER IN BOTH PLACES or you may be charged twice! Register here if you are a Master Naturalist.
