Details to come, but I’ll be speaking about the use of iNaturalist for plant identification and supporting land management efforts in the Chicago Region. The talk is hosted through the Società Romana di Scienze Naturali (SRSN), an Italian research institute dedicated to promoting and conducting scientific research in the natural sciences. Learn more about SRSN here: http://www.srsn.it/

While I’m trying to learn some Italian, this talk will be conducted in English, with help from native Italian speakers to answer questions that may come up. Many thanks to Stefano Doglio for helping get this set up!
I’ll update this post with details as I get them, but for now, save the date. : )
