CNGA Technology Workshop

Apps and Snaps: Smartphone, Camera, and Online Technology for Grassland Plant Mapping, Tracking, and Identification

Saturday July 15, 2017 9 am to 4 pm    

Trudeau Conference Center, Redwood Regional Park, 11500 Skyline Blvd, Oakland, CA 94619         

Join us for a full day of classroom and field training. With the proliferation in technology comes an increased ability to collect, share, and manage data. This workshop will focus on mapping, photomonitoring, using iNaturalist and Calflora apps, as well as tips for taking photos to aid in later identification or long-term tracking. Technology-based tools for plant ID will also be covered. We will spend the morning in the classroom, then use our gadgets in the field after lunch, returning to the classroom to go over data upload and editing. Some experience or comfort with technology is preferred but not essential; we will focus on basic, broadly useful tools but this is not meant to be an introductory course.

Instructors:

Andrea Williams – Vegetation Ecologist for Marin Municipal Water District on Mt. Tamalpais; has used Calflora and iNaturalist in citizen science botanical blitzes, and taught mapping, photo monitoring, and grass identification field courses. CNGA and Calflora board member.

Michele Hammond – Botanist for the East Bay Regional Park District in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties; has studied California grasslands and their ecology and management for the past 20 years. CNGA board member. 

$160 CNGA members, $190/Non-members, $95/Students with ID*

Morning coffee and snacks along with a bag lunch are included.
