iNaturalist: City Nature Challenge - DFW

Apr 26 2019 - 7:00am to Apr 29 2019 - 11:45pm

Join Texas Parks and Wildlife, Texas Master Naturalists, the Audubon Society, and many others in a fun challenge to see which city can document the most species during April 26 - 29. It is easy to participate by joining an event or making observations on your own using the iNaturalist app. With the iNaturalist app, you just take a picture of a plant or animal, and the community will help identify which species it is. Any observation in the greater metropolitan area of Dallas/Fort Worth will count during the four day challenge. You can participate by exploring the life in your backyard, in your local park, or on a field trip with your local naturalist group. You can also help with IDs for other people's observations to increase our species count, come to a bioblitz, or even hold your own event! 

The City Nature Challenge is organized by Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County and California Academy of Sciences.

Dallas Sierra Club: Wilderness Navigation - Dallas

May 7 2019 - 6:30pm to May 8 2019 - 9:00pm
Whole Foods Market
Preston Road and Forest Lane
Dallas , TX

Learn the fundamentals of navigating your way in the wilderness in this fun and comprehensive two-night class. Among the subjects covered are: looking for and purchasing different type maps, how to read maps, how not to get lost, map use if you do get lost, different kinds of compasses and how to use your compass. There will be some discussion about GPS, but our main focus is learning how to use a map and compass so you're not trusting your navigation (and life) to something that takes batteries. If you have a compass, bring it. If not, we'll have extras you can use and will show you what to look for when you purchase your own.

$40. Cost covers both nights and handout materials. We encourage online signups by Monday before the class (click here) or you can pay with cash or check at the door. A half-day hike the following Saturday or Sunday with the class instructors Arthur Kuehne and Bill Greer will be offered to class participants who want to practice their new skills.
