Fire Followers can visit burned sites in California and collect plant data via iNaturalist. Check our burn areas page to see what sites are open. Download the iNaturalist app and join our project. Once you’ve joined, your observations in burn areas will be automatically uploaded to the project. You can join on our project page and see all the burn areas on our project map.
Help identify plant observations in our iNaturalist project.
Even if you do not live near a burned area or are unable to access these sites, you can visit our iNaturalist project and help identify plants. Be sure to make comments and identifications to help aid others on their observations!
