Become an iNaturalist expert.
Students from Dr. Andrea Wiggins' Information Systems and Quantitative Analysis class are assisting Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium and Omaha STEM Ecosystem, in helping with the City Nature Challenge, by providing free training on the iNaturalist app. This app is used to record observations of plants and animals, and it will be used in this year’s challenge.
One student had this to say, “This project is a chance to apply classroom lessons with a real-world impact. Rather than a simulated, classroom “example,” the iNaturalist project is providing me with experience in a way that cements lessons from my courses in a way that brings meaningful impact to our community.”
The students can’t wait to offer their services to the public.
Training will take place on March 13, 4:30 P.M. - 6:30 P.M. in the Barbara Weitz Community Engagement Center on UNO’s campus. This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required to attend.
