Kody Crawford of the TRF said you can help the Spartanburg County area compete against more than 150 cities worldwide for the title of “the most biodiverse city” during the nature challenge Friday, April 26 – Monday, April 29, 2019.
Norris said the species can be recorded on your Apple or Android device.
That includes any plant, animal, fungi, slime mold or other evidence of life, such as scat, fur, tracks, shells and carcasses, found anywhere in Spartanburg County.
Crawford said the next step is to take a picture of what you find. Be sure to note the location of the plant or critter.
Norris continued that you need to Upload your photos and findings to inaturalist. The app is free to download on apple’s app store or google play for android.
Norris said zoo or science center animals and cultivated plants are excluded from the challenge and do not count as observations.
