iNaturalist app training

This morning I joined a group (@alenartz and Cicely, @cflower, @jszalwinski, @kgometz and @mtluczek) involved in mapping non-native Pennisetum grasses in the Phoenix parks and preserve system. It was a refresher course in using the iNaturalist app. The good news is we only found a little buffel grass, and no fountain grass. We did see a good bit of stinknet, though. But we found plenty of interesting things to observe, even though the spring season is quickly coming to an end. Most everything green is quickly turning to brown.

One point I stressed is the utility of using iNaturalist to find out the names of creatures you don't know. We had a live demonstration of that when I posted an observation of a plant we found while crossing the playing field of a nearby school. Within half an hour or so we had an ID (thanks, @nathantaylor7583!).

Parkinsonia ✕ "Desert Museum"? The single flower looks like P. aculeata, and the plant has plenty of young fruit. However, the leaves are very short.
