We need the "power users!" Competition heating up! We need you. :)

We need you. "We" is "nature in DFW" and "you" is "you."

The City Nature Challenge is just a few weeks away!

Weather will be the major dictator of how involved we get (rain predicted as of right now, but who knows?!? https://weather.com/weather/monthly/l/USTX0045:1:US), but we will need a REALLY big input from you all. You are the cream of the crop in DFW citizen scientists, and we have some major competition from the other 15 cities -- they are coming out big time for this challenge, so I hope we can too! :)

Again, ANY observation made within the 10 county region around Dallas/Fort Worth will count, but if you do want to gather with friends, there are lots of events going on around DFW during this weekend. Here's the semi-final list:

Friday, April 14…

9 am – noon: Breckinridge Park in Richardson *
9 am – 11 am: White Rock Lake (Bath House) in Dallas
9:30 am – 12:30 pm: Twelve Hills Nature Center in Dallas
11:30 am - 1 pm: UNT campus (by student union and admin building) in Denton
1 pm – 4 pm: Bear Creek Nature Park in Lancaster *
5:30 pm - 8:30 pm: The Mound in Flower Mound
7 pm – 10 pm: Cedar Ridge Preserve in Cedar Hill (mothing!)
7 pm – 10 pm: Mockingbird Nature Park in Midlothian (mothing!) *

Saturday, April 15…

8 am - 11 am: LLELA in Lewisville
9 am – noon: OS Gray Natural Area in Arlington *
9 am - noon: Marion Sansom Park in Fort Worth
9 am – 1 pm: Heard Museum in McKinney
10 am – 11:30 am: Twelve Hills Nature Center in Dallas (butterfly walk!)
1 pm – 4 pm: South West Nature Preserve in Arlington *
1:30 pm – 3 pm: Fort Worth Nature Center in Fort Worth

Sunday, April 16 (Easter Sunday)…

9 am - 3 pm: Connemara Nature Preserve in Allen

Monday, April 17…

9 am – noon: Mike Lewis Park in Grand Prairie *
1 pm – 4 pm: Cross Timbers Park in North Richland Hills *

Tuesday, April 18…

9:30 am – 11 am: Blackland Prairie Conservatory & Atelier prairie in Dallas
4 pm - 7 pm: Tandy Hills Park in Fort Worth *

So, you power users -- we need you biiiiiiig time! :) No obligations, of course, but I do hope you can go out and make some observations during this time!

just so you know, we're all winners and there are no losers in this thing. But let's do try to show the rest of the country just how magnificent the nature in DFW is!

@wilddallas Everything has to be uploaded before 4/22. @lulubelle It's calculated by location and date - no need to upload to any specific group. All observations in the DFW area between 4/14 and 4/18 will count.

Thanks for giving the answers in the comments on this!

As Dan mentions -- ALL observations made within April 14 - 18 in the DFW counties will count automatically (aggregated to the project). Now, one of the challenges will be that all of these have to be uploaded BEFORE April 22 to count... That's going to be the challenge!

So, there isn't a project that you need to join, although, you can if you want to. http://www.inaturalist.org/projects/city-nature-challenge-2017-dallas-fort-worth

The other cities in this competition are bumping up their efforts -- we'll need to step up all efforts to keep up! :) I'm excited.

Sorry, another clarification. It is for sure the most species correct? Is that day by day? Once someone has posted an observation of a certain organism is there no point in reposting? Thanks and sorry if this is covered elsewhere.

Do they all have to research grade to count? Only asking because plants & fungi (bugs to a certain extent) do not often get vetted in my experience.

I was wondering the same. I can put on hundreds of obs in that time but I won't know 90% of them. We're going to have to do some overtime identifying...

פורסם על-ידי k8thegr8 לפני יותר מ 4 שנים (סמן)

@lulubelle @k8thegr8 The leaderboards show Observations, Species, and Members. I don't know the answer to the species question, but it's a good one. My guess is that on the 22nd cutoff date, whatever is loaded counts toward observations and members. Whatever is ID'ed at that point counts toward species. So ID'ing will be important too.

AUSTIN HAS 86 MEMBERS AND HOUSTON HAS 80 TO DFW'S 52! This is indicative only of the people that have actively joined the project in advance, but let's keep getting the word out!! #teamdfw

We have maintained a lead as far as observations, but are 2nd in species.

There will be time to update IDs after the observation cutoff if you don't know what something is called. Do your best, even if its just plant, snake, or dragonfly. Those in the know will follow through and help add IDs. And dont forget to try out the Identotron feature. Once you upload your observation with "butterfly" as the ID you can click Identotron to see all butterflies that have been observed at that location. You don't have to be 100% sure, either! I know I usually go back through all the observations at an event I attended to try to get as many IDs updated as possible. Getting it UPLOADED is the biggest step right now!! :) I hope everyone is enjoying themselves!

Day 3 has started (if you are still up at 3am like me), but I know it will be a slower day for observations as people celebrate Easter. I just wanted to give a shout out to TEAM DFW for being #1 in Texas, and behind only San Francisco in the country! Wooot wooot!!

Dear friends, it's thick in the competition now!

San Francisco @lhiggins @kestrel has taken the lead, but we're knocking at the door in second place. Definitely focus on grabbing some more observations, but be sure to look for some new species for you! If there's a weird bug or plant that you haven't seen before, let's document it -- don't worry about putting a species name on it, we'll be there to give you some guidance (although, it may take a little bit of time). :)

Also, if you're willing to, be sure to look through the observations and toss in some ID's or guidance in ID's -- we've got a LOT to look through! I haven't done much of this yet, but I'm planning on staying up for... several nights... to give guidance. :)

The other challenge is identifying... Now, observations will be identified for a long time to come, but to help out with our species count, we want to try to identify as much as possible before April 22 as well.

@lulubelle If you tag Sam in your observation, as a comment, that will guide him to unidentified plant observations.

Also, make sure to give some ID, like Flowering plant, Butterflies and Moths or similar. I try to identify as many moths as possible and I do a search for Lepidoptera among the unidentified (otherwise they disappear among all the plants), so if people just leave it empty it doesn't show up for me.

פורסם על-ידי annikaml לפני יותר מ 4 שנים (סמן)

Just to clarify, observations have to uploaded before Saturday morning at 11 our time for them to count as observation #'s.

Now, not everything will be ID'ed in time before the competition ends, and that's ok -- it'll be ID'ed for a long time to come as Judith mentions. Buuuut, to add any new species for the competition, they need to be ID'ed before it ends. Clear as mud, yeah? The point: get those observations uploaded first and then the community will help with ID's -- that's what I'm planning on doing a bunch tonight. :)
