The Winning Inch

0001

DATES: Sunday, Jan. 2nd (Rain Date; Jan. 9th)-

EVENT DETAILS
Free camping and park use for participants
Where | Sugarloaf Ridge State Park (Glass Fire Burn Site)

Hello everyone,

I wanted to take a moment to share this amazing event hosted by @dlevitis and the Sonoma Ecology Center. They are inviting all naturalists to Sugarloaf Ridge State Park to join a bioblitz game called The Winning Inch. Teams (called inches) of three iNaturalists have one full day to document as much of the biodiversity of the park as they can according to The Winning Inch Game Rules: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1BHtiEwXZNxlyEeKov7LTG9cwOSzp8KgiX-bbvDYu0kc/edit?usp=sharing

All participants will be given a free day pass to the park and are encouraged to camp at their group campsite the evening after the event.

Signup form: https://forms.gle/BPNaP1uD14oCjCP96
Each member of your inch should fill out this form, but please make sure all three enter the same Inch Name.

Feel free to reach out to @dlevitis with any questions!

This is a great opportunity to come out and explore the Glass Fire burn area and contribute to the Fire Followers project as well. Be sure to click on the links provided above in the description to learn more about this event.

You are tagged in this post because you are among some of the top observers in the Glass Fire burn area and we hope you take part in this Bioblitz coming up!

CA Fire Followers Letter of Gratitude:

Print

Let’s take a moment to reflect and write about something you’re thankful for. As the 2021 year comes near its end, we wanted to show our immense gratitude for how far the project has come. Thank you all for your support and participation and I am excited to see what will continue to come this upcoming year!

To date, our Fire Followers Project has received approximately 60,000 observations and close to 10k individuals involved throughout California. In the last 8 months, it has been great to see this project grow into a strong, well-supported project. Thanks to the Seaver Institute for making this all possible.

We are especially thankful to some of our partner organizations who have been doing a tremendous job contributing to the project. Also important to note their effort to further expand our mutual goals to activate and educate volunteers on ephemeral fire following plants through community science.

Partners
Sonoma Ecology Center
Save Mount Diablo
Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History

Thank you for all the support so far and an especial thanks to @dlevitis, @sierraazul, @aapatten and @dcastro01 for leading some amazing events so far. Thanks to the Sonoma Ecology Center and @dlevitis for contributing to the 16,000 observations in the Glass Fire project at approximately 67% RG! Additionally, @sierraazul and @aapatten have been pivotal to the ~5k observations in the CZU Lightning Complex project with the myriad of events held by the Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History, including guided tours, trainings/workshops and Rare Plant Treasure Hunts. Lastly, @dcastro01 did an amazing job preparing the Save Mount Diablo Bioblitz focused on the SCU Lightning Complex bringing a total of 2,529 observations and 110 observers participated which accounted for over half of the observations at the time.

Naturalist
First off, thank you all for contributing to this project. We have had people involved with the project through the observations, identifications, and even through outreach and sharing the project. It has been amazing so far being able to connect with a lot of people here on iNaturalist and learning so much in the process. Thank you all for participating in our Fire Followers Challenges so far and if you’ve won any of the challenges, I hope that you’ve enjoyed the Fire Followers’ merch!

Special shout out to our top contributors!

Harvest Moon


Observation by @leptonia /Christian Schwarz

As Summer Falls into September, we get ready for everything that Fall has to offer! Yesterday was the autumnal equinox for the Northern Hemisphere and on Sep 20, 2021 our Harvest Moon came. We will be bringing another month long observation challenge before the end of this calendar year. Starting now until our next full moon on October 20, 2021 (Hunter’s moon), any observation made from the following list will be counted towards your score!

Below, we have compiled a list of plant groups that have edible fruits or other parts. We encourage you to look (and photograph) but DON'T gather, though, as particularly in burned areas wildlife need the food!

Pumpkin Spice


observation by @chris_winchell

DATES: Wednesday | September 9 - September 30

EVENT DETAILS

The smell of fall is in the air! For many, that’s “pumpkin spice,” but for lots of field folks the pungent scent of tarplants or hedgenettles evokes the end of summer and a transition to autumn, when the leaves of poison-oak turn a brilliant red. For our last observation-based challenge of the year, we’re focusing on plants that represent the season, be they California smells or California-related versions of pumpkin spice species:

Madieae: Tarplant tribe
Stachys: Hedgenettles
Lauraceae: Cinnamon
Asarum: California ginger (true ginger is in Zingiberaceae)
Torreya: California nutmeg (true nutmeg is Myristicaceae)
Myrtales: Allspice (and a lot of other plants, including evening primroses)
Cucurbitaceae: Pumpkin

Poison Oak and Plant Based Milks: Anacardiaceae: Poison-oak (and cashews, if you put cashew milk in your latte) If you want to add additional plant-based milk, add Rosaceae (almond milk) and Fabaceae (soy milk) and Poaceae (oat milk) that works too! The more the merrier.

We encourage everyone to go out and make as many observations as possible! At the end of the month, the person with the most observations that fall within the categories above will win a Fire Followers Shirt! In addition to the first place prize, we will be having a raffle! Anyone that makes a single observation in the categories listed will have a chance to win a fire followers pin and sticker!

Good luck!

AI: Andrea vs Identotron - Getting the most out of computer-aided plant ID

Thursday August 26, 2021 5pm - 6pm https://bit.ly/cnps0826

Free · Online Webinar

DATES: THURSDAY AT 5 PM PDT – 6 PM PDT

EVENT DETAILS
Please note this program is being offered virtually via Zoom:
Register to join live on Zoom at bit.ly/cnps0826

One thing movies tell us is that artificial intelligence can’t be trusted, and what better way to celebrate that trope than with an event that celebrates a healthy suspicion of AI? A lot of us simply accept without question the computer-aided suggestions in iNaturalist, but check again! Is the plant suggested even found in that region? Does it match the description in a flora? Join us as we present you with all the tips and tricks to get the best ID suggestion to your ability. Join us and learn how to identify plants on iNaturalist and how you can participate in our Fire Followers Campaign.

Join Andrea Williams, a botanist who can help you get the most out of iNaturalist’s suggestions! Andrea is the director of Biodiversity Initiatives for the California Native Plant Society. Starting off wanting to know what everything was and doing “spot the difference” puzzles as a child led easily to today’s leisure activity of identifying plants on iNaturalist and Calflora. Andrea has two decades of botany experience in public lands management in California, adding over 100 taxa to five local plant lists through observation and community science.

Skynet Challenge

Feeling inspired to put your new knowledge to the test? After our webinar, we will begin our Skynet Challenge, where you will have the opportunity to apply what you learned and help us identify some of the thousands of observations that still need to reach Research Grade.

We encourage you to help others identify their observations, however, starting on Friday, 8/27, our challenge will focus on the most overall improvements and leading identifications. Feel free to check out this list of observations that still need to be ID’d and test your knowledge! The winners will be announced on 9/8. Help identify for a chance to win a Fire Followers shirt!

Here is the link to the identification page for our project: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/identify?iconic_taxa=Plantae&project_id=california-fire-followers-2020

As of now, there are a total of 14,035 observations that still need to reach RG. Best of luck!

Dog Days of August


Dates | August 2, 2021-August 31, 2021

Details:
The Ancient Romans used to associate the hottest and most humid days of the year with the star Sirius, known as the “dog star”. As July comes to an end along with blistering heat waves throughout CA which set record temperatures, we continue to brace for more heat in August. With CA’s wildfire season continuing, we hope that everyone participating in our community science project does so safely.

This month of August, we want to continue to encourage everyone to help identify some of the observations that need ID’s. Show your dogged determination, make sure these identifications aren’t barking up the wrong tree, and keep our project from going to the dogs! Starting today, participants will have the entire month of August to make as many identifications as possible!

The Fire Followers Project has approximately +51,000 observations! Out of those observations, approximately 14,000 observations still need ID:
https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?place_id=any&project_id=california-fire-followers-2020&quality_grade=needs_id&subview=table&verifiable=any&iconic_taxa=Plantae
Click the link above and help us get these observations to RG.

The top identifier for the month of August will receive a Fire Followers Shirt!

Geophyte Club Challenge, we have managed to get observations that Need ID from ~18,000 to ~14,000! This is with the additional 6,000+ observations that have been added to the project since early July! Thank you to everyone who has participated so far!

1) As a reminder, even if you do not know the species, you can help by identifying the observation to a finer level such as identifying the family, which is extremely helpful for others. Also, feel free to use the comment section to let others know what you're thinking!
2) You can help by confirming IDs that have already been made, refining IDs from general to more specific and correcting mis-identifications. The Suggestions tab will offer similar plants seen in the area--make sure you check it’s a good match.
3) To find likely mis-identifications, look at the Species tab of one of the fire areas you know pretty well. Scroll down to the bottom and look at the plants that only have one or two observations. Check on any out of range observations or plants you know are ornamental.

You are tagged in this post because you are among some of the top most recent identifiers in the project and we hope you take part in helping identify some of the observations made so far! Feel free to share this with other Naturalists who you think would like to participate and don't forget to join our Fire Followers Project. Thanks for your help!
