Midway through the great week

So far, we have made 3,201 observations of 1,294 species from Hawaii to Alaska to Massachusetts to Florida! We have made observations in the Midwest, Great Plains, Rocky Mountains, and Cascades, but most, as you would expect are from the Southern Appalachians and Southeast. Of our 3,201 observations, we have seen 807 plant species, 237 fungi, 147 insects, 54 birds, 21 spiders, 15 mollusks, 10 mammals, 9 reptiles, and 13 “other animals.” The most observed species is pokeweed! (At least it isn’t poison ivy, like it was for a while last year!) The fungi pics have been fantastic.

Ladyjanaye has seen the most species with 245 observed in only four days. Incredible! Dakilaledesma has led the board on the most observations for a few days now, but ladyjanaye, howlinjay, kcbowmanphd, abmorris, and pjbcox have posted significant numbers, too. For me, personally, I have really enjoyed seeing stonemtnhiker’s incredible observations from Hawaii as well as those of scottranger from Alaska, mam252’s fungi from the Mt Hood area of Oregon, and ameliag24 from Colorado! Woodbridge, pjbcox, and howlinjay, have made a lot of great posts in the Southern Appalachians.

Now that we’re all warmed up, let’s ramp it up toward the end of the week!

Getting ready for FvWFP 2021!

Hello virtual pilgrims!

I know we are all on the same page in thinking that we hope this is the last time that we will have to meet only virtually. Still, let's get all hyped and make and share a lot of observations the weekend after this one. If you are unfamiliar with the "rules," pictures have to be time stamped within the dates of the event (if you are using your phones or newer cameras it does this automatically and hides the time and date in the metadata of the photo). You also have to register with us (registration opens October 1) and submit to us your iNaturalist username so we can add you to the project. After that it is all fun, learning, and sharing!

I always look forward to these events and while I am busy planning a "real" Pilgrimage for 2022, we may also try to keep this component going to some degree.

Rules of the Virtual Pilgrimage!

Hello everyone!! We're so excited to have you on board for our Fall Virtual Pilgrimage! There are only a couple of rules one must follow to be apart of the Pilgrimage:

  1. Must have an INaturalist username, and email it to us at wildflowerpilgrimage@sebiologists.org -- that way we can add you to the list and all observations you post will automatically be uploaded to the event.
  2. All observations MUST BE TAKEN DURING THE TIME FRAME OF THE EVENT. This means they cannot be images you took from a hike the week before, etc. but must be taken during the week of the event and then uploaded to the app/website. This is the only way they will upload to the project.
  3. That's it!! You are allowed to upload observations of anything you see in the biological world!! This means wildflowers, trees, fungi, creepy crawlers, birds, reptiles and amphibians, mammals, even animal tracks, and the list goes on!! Just have fun with it (:
