Join the Wood County, Ohio Biodiversity Project on i-Naturalist

Ever wonder what that fascinating insect was in your backyard or what that unusual flower was that you saw in the park? Or maybe you just found something really cool and wished you had someone to share it with. If this sounds familiar, then we’d like you to join the Wood County, Ohio Biodiversity Project. Found on the iNaturalist website, the Wood County, Ohio Biodiversity Project is an opportunity for all levels of naturalists and outdoor enthusiasts to share, learn, and interact with like-minded individuals. As a fantastic byproduct, the iNaturalist site allows users to contribute to an ever-growing body of knowledge documenting the biodiversity that Wood County, Ohio has to offer. Capturing and recording this information is crucial to the protection of our natural resources for the benefit of future generations. So if you live in Wood County or you visit our parks, take a few minutes to check out the site, and, better yet, register on the site and try posting a few pictures of your own!
