A good description (much better than mine) of how to post a wildlife observation to iNaturalist, by Jonah Evans, on his “Nature Tracking” site:
Happy New Year, and good news for Pathways: our stock just went up with the acquisition of iNaturalist by the California Academy of Sciences. Come see our project there at iNaturalist and post your own wildlife sightings, including identifiable tracks, scat, and other sign you’re sure of. The great part about iNaturalist is that even if you’re a little shaky on the ID, you can call for help from a whole team of professionals around the world who can help you make that identification. Also, its good for Pathways to have our posted data checked and “verified” by experts in the field, who can then mark our data as “research grade” if it passes muster.

So keep those photos coming, and we’ll see you out on the trail in 2015, Thanks!
