We are way behind in number of observations, but ahead in species: 977 vs 903 vs 926 (greater Houston vs DFW vs Austin). Please make more observations, people, and keep posting different species.
LOTS of Group activities on Saturday, 4/15! To see all the group activities throughout 4/18, go to following sites:
New event: Sunday, 4/16/17 at Galveston State Park: “Morning and afternoon are both options, depending on interest. Please respond ASAP if you’re considering coming. Transportation will be provided unless there are more than three of you. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org and/or Bob Romero, email@example.com.” That should help with the species count.
Suggestions for center of city: Nature Discovery Center in Bellaire, Audubon’s Edith L Moore Sanctuary, walk along the various bayous (please note, the wildflower seedings should probably be categorized as cultivated), Memorial Park, Hermann Park.
iNat Tip #1: If you don’t have lots of data on your plan or a wifi only tablet, first login to your iNat app; then turn off cellular; take photos using the camera or “observe” icon in iNat app; enter desired data on site or do everything at home; after each photo hit “next” (on my phone) and then either “share” or “save”; and then upload at home using wifi (or go to Starbucks, Panera….if you have a slow wifi at home). Try it out in your yard first.
