Virtual Arachnid Bioblitz

When: Friday June 25 - Sunday June 27

Where: iNaturalist & your backyard (or wherever you are)

What: Find, photograph, and identify arachnids! 

Why: To see how many arachnids we can record & identify in one weekend, and to win prizes for the most submissions, the most identifications, unusual observations, & more! 

How: Do your own thing, or come to one or all of our workshops on collecting, arachnid ID, and photography (more details below). Whatever you do, be sure to join the project to make sure that your observations are recorded and for a chance to win prizes! If you’re new to iNaturalist, get started with this guide. It’s easiest to make observations with a smartphone camera and the iNat app (download here for iphone or android), but images taken with any kind of camera can be submitted through the desktop version.
