Do you love spending time outside observing nature, and have a curiosity for plant and animal identification? 

OCT welcomes volunteers to help test our Biodiversity Seekers program, a new initiative designed to build a bank of biodiversity data for our properties. On a periodic basis, volunteers will be asked to attend ”bioblitzes,” group data collection sessions, using iNaturalist’s Seek app to identify and categorize flora and fauna on OCT lands. The program aims to ensure OCT makes land stewardship decisions informed by good data, and it may evolve to allow individuals to collect data on their own time, too. 

This orientation will cover what, why, and how information is being collected. No experience necessary; all are welcome! 

Meet at OCT’s office; 203 South Orleans Road.
