iNaturalist for Families: Enhance your trip to Joshua Tree National Park with a field investigation for kids. that engages a variety of learners while providing exciting service-learning. The and Android and iPhone applications provide a creative interface for children to become interested in observing organisms found in the Joshua Tree National Park. iNaturalist functionality is akin to the “The Facebook of Biology”, in that online photos and written exchanges between teacher, naturalists, and students are shared. Students also enjoy the “competition” of obtaining research-grade data.

Bring snacks, a lunch and water, a day pack, comfortable shoes, sunscreen and hat, and an open mind for learning in Joshua Tree National Park!
