Want to explore some of the more secluded and less-visited areas of the Mahoning River Valley, then come on out for a hike with Josh Boyle to photograph and document the plants and animals that populate these wild places for the sake of science and research.
To give you an example of a few activities we might do on our hike:
-measure, ID and document the largest species of trees
-setting up game cameras and scouting new sites that show animal activity
-photographing birds, insects, flowers and plants
-assessing stream habitat through observations and sampling
All the information and data gathered will be utilized by the MetroParks and uploaded to iNaturalist. iNaturalist is a fun, interactive website and app that connects everyday people to researchers and their projects locally, regionally and internationally. The iNaturalist app only requires that you take some identifying photos of plants, animals, or insects.
