About this Event
Join thousands of fellow Australians around the country, in using your smart-phone to observe and record whatever life you can see or hear in one of the rare precious bushland areas in your Adelaide Park Lands.
The Adelaide Park Lands Association is hosting one of the many many events nation-wide for the Great Southern BioBlitz, over a four-day period: October 28 to 31.
Our event will be staged on Sunday morning, 30 October, 10am to 12 noon, within G.S. Kingston Park / Wirrarninthi (Park 23). We will focus just on the northern part of that Park - known as the Wirrarninthi Environmental Trail, in-between the West Terrace Cemetery and Sir Donald Bradman Drive.
All you need is your smart phone, equipped with the iNaturalist app (available free from Google's PlayStore or the Apple AppStore).
The task is simple: record what you see or hear (plants, insects, reptiles, birds - even birdsong or frogs croaking).
Upload the sound or picture to iNaturalist. The app will tag the exact spot that you recorded your observation, and make a suggestion about what species you have found. You can try to identify it yourself, but that's not essential.
