Winyah Wildlife Project
Welcome to the Winyah Wildlife Project, where you can help to survey backyard biodiversity throughout the 3rd largest watershed on the east coast!
Through this project, we will record the plant, insect, bird, reptile and even fungus species found in yards and neighborhood green spaces across the Winyah watershed. Taken as a whole, recording all of the species even in a small yard can be a monumental task, so we will be breaking it down over the coming weeks with tips and other information on how to become you own backyard ecosystem expert.
Here’s how you can join us in the Winyah Wildlife Project:
1. Create an iNaturalist account. Go to https://www.inaturalist.org/pages/getting+started. You do need a camera, but don’t have to have a smart phone. Observations can be uploaded at the website.
2. Search for and join the project “Winyah Wildlife” https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/winyah-wildlife. Your observations will then be automatically added to our project. While you are there, check out and review your fellow researchers’ posts.
