Exploring Nature with iNaturalist: A Seek Scavenger Hunt

Sunday, October 4, 2020
1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

We're going on a nature scavenger hunt! Use Seek by iNaturalist, a nature identification app, to find at least five plants, trees, or animals as you explore one of Skokie’s parks.

This event will take place at Devonshire Park (4422 Greenwood Street).

Staff from the library and Skokie Park District will be available to help with the app, scavenger hunt, and identification questions. Earn stickers for each identification and bonus points for learning about the classification of each plant.

Please bring your own mobile device and, if possible, download Seek by iNaturalist in advance. Curious about the app? View this how-to video by Michelle to get familiar with Seek before the event.

Want to share your observations with others in the community? Join the library and Skokie Park District in sharing observations of plants and animals with the Skokie Nature with Neighbors community project with iNaturalist, Seek’s sister app. Learn how to use iNaturalist here.

Participants are required to wear a face mask and stay 6 feet from other participants and family groups at all times.
