About the Nature Spotter APP
The Riverside Nature Spotter app is a handy tool that helps nature lovers share their observations --whether it be an insect, plant, animal, or other living thing. Spotters can send a photo with questions about what they’ve seen and a Naturalist will reply with feedback. Observations will be collected and used to create an online database to share with fellow Nature Spotters. So get outdoors, take or choose a photo, and send with your comments or questions! This is a project of the Riverside Citizen Science program. This application was developed by the City of Riverside, CA Information Technology department working with Riverside Metropolitan Museum, the Parks, Recreation, and Community Services Department, and their Riverside Citizen Science partners.
Where do my photos go?
Photos sent using the app or by email will be sent to a naturalist from the Riverside Citizen Science project, who will identify the insect, plant, animal, or other natural subject you send. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have about it and provide any helpful information you feel may be of use. The photos will then be placed into our Riverside Citizen Science online database on the inaturalist website so that this information can be shared and viewed by other nature spotters. If you would not like to have your photos shared, but would still like to get feedback from our naturalist, then please include that in your message when you send it.
