INLAND NW ROUTES
Have you ever seen a wildflower on a hike that you didn’t know what it was?
THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT.
iNaturalist is a free app that will identify any living plant, animal, etc.
While you hike, and see a flower or whatever, all you do is take several images, log onto the app and download your image(s).
In a few days, they will have their world wide identifiers, tell you what it is.
Then they plot where it was photographed.
All this data is plotted on a world map, that shows everywhere in the world they grows.
After creating an account, all of your observations are in your account, and can be accessed for your future reference.
To date, they have over 151,000,000 observations, of 431,785 species, by 6,692,461 people around the world.
This whole app is sponsored by National Geographic and a few other organizations.
It’s fun to be able to learn what you wonder about on your hikes.
I take screenshots of 12 or so observation at a time, which makes it easier to access and use them to identify them when I need to.
Keep in mind, they can identify any living organism.
