From hikers to hunters, birders to beach-combers, the world is filled with naturalists, and many of us record what we find. What if all those observations could be shared online? You might discover someone who finds beautiful wildflowers at your favorite birding spot, or learn about the birds you see on the way to work. If enough people recorded their observations, it would be like a living record of life on Earth that scientists and land managers could use to monitor changes in biodiversity, and that anyone could use to learn more about nature.
That's the vision behind iNaturalist.org. So if you like recording your findings from the outdoors, or if you just like learning about life, join us!

Creek Watch is a free iPhone application designed to help citizen scientists monitor the health of their local watershed. Whenever passing by a waterway, citizen scientists can spend a few seconds using the Creek Watch application to snap a picture and report how much water and trash they see. IBM, which created the app, aggregates the data and share it with water control boards to help them track pollution and manage water resources.
