I'm an amateur trying to learn about the natural history of the area I live in and areas I frequent for hikes. I am best at the ID of plants, and I am OK with a few plant Genus keys for my area of geography (California). Long ago I took basic Botany, and Field Botany. It was in the Santa Monica Mountains. I didn't start using plant keys again until a few years ago, and the skill is relative to the amount of practice and study you put into it.

My connection with iNaturalist is I went on a couple BioBlitzes who used this software. I am an avid hiker and an environmentalist since childhood, which means I am primarily concerned with conservation of land, threatened, and endangered species, and any cause that saves what we have left of wild spaces. Stewardship of the public lands can't be left to the government, so I am interested in supporting organizations like The Ventana Wilderness Alliance. I also support the California Native Plant Society, because I believe every single native plant species and population should continue, and not become extinct nor extirpated.

While out there in our last wild places, and in all places let us all be good stewards of the land, and leave no trace of our visit!
