Spotlight on iNaturalist, eBird and NatureCounts

Join park ecologist, Tammy Dobbie and resident birder, Sarah Rupert to learn how your observations can help the park’s research and monitoring programs.  They will review the basics of all three programs, how they are used by the park, and provide tips and tricks on how to get the most out them.  You’ll learn how to share your observation, even when you aren’t sure of the ID! You can join the Wildflower Walk at 1:00 pm and test out your new skills.

Program provided by Parks Canada.

    Sarah Rupert is a life-long southern Ontario girl and has been a nature lover since day one. She has a particular passion and fascination for birds, which she loves to share through interpretive programs, art and other media. Sarah has been birding her entire life, and hasn’t missed a spring at Point Pelee since her first visit at 2.5 months old. Currently living in Leamington ON, her day job is with Parks Canada and the rest of the time she can be found looking at, drawing or painting the natural world around her. She eagerly awaits the arrival of spring, and birders, to Pelee each spring.
