Meet up in New Orleans on August 6! And stickers!

Next month I'll be giving a talk about iNaturalist at the Ecological Society of America's Annual Meeting in New Orleans. It's part of a session called Natural History in the Digital Age on Monday, August 6 at the Convention Center.

That evening, I've reserved space for folks to meet up at a place nearby called Coterie. We'll have some appetizers and there will be a happy hour menu for you to buy drinks and other food.

Coterie
135 Decatur Street, French Quarter, New Orleans
Monday, August 6
6:30-8 PM

Also, stickers! I'll have the very first (official) iNaturalist stickers.

iNaturalist stickers have so far only been spotted in captivity, but will be released into the wild in New Orleans with the help of enthusiastic observers.

I'm tagging the top 10ish observers in the state of Louisiana, along with the top 10(ish) in Orleans Parish, then folks from a bounding-box search of southern Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and western Florida. Then a few ecologists I know mainly outside of iNat who I know/think will attend. I know some of you tagged here are likely too far to make it, but I wanted to be inclusive, especially in case you're coming for the meeting anyways. Please tag others in the region who may want to attend!

I would LOVE to attend, Carrie, but I'll be in Boston that date. I hope @misspt, @mcferny, @terit or maybe @ajm1993 (who's not on your list but is coming up fast) can come to represent Mississippi. The esa meeting is a great venue to get out the word about iNaturalist, and you get me thinking about others like the Wildlife Society....
Will your talk or slides be available afterwards? I'm giving a two-session course in iNaturalist at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute in October and would love to get some tips. Also, how can we get some of those stickers?!
Good luck with your planning - it should be great.

Thanks, @janetwright! Sorry you'll be away during that time. My talk is just a 5 minute Ignite talk, but I can definitely share the slides. Hope some of the folks you tagged can come and bring you a sticker!

WHAT? Those stickers are awesome!

That sounds like an awesome talk! I'll be stuck on the other side of the state though. Love the stickers, too!

Sorry to miss you @ilouque! Maybe someone else can bring you some stickers.

We'll be distributing stickers in California, too @vermfly! If anyone has an interest in bulk ordering iNaturalist stickers, please email me at carrie@inaturalist.org.

Definitely extra incentive to get my butt to a meetup out here. I need some of these stickers.

Glad you'll be there, @cypseloides! Tagging @andy71 since he and I corresponded about this idea a while back.

I'm re-tagging folks who haven't chimed in yet one way or another, in case this was initially buried in other notifications. Hope you can join us at the ESA New Orleans meet up on August 6!

Can't make it. Wish I could but it's during a work week and I live about 6 hours away from there.

Αναρτήθηκε από royaltyler πάνω από 4 χρόνια πριν (Αναφορά)

I can't make it either, I live 2 hours away and the next morning is the first day of school for my children. I really wish I could make it.

Αναρτήθηκε από misspt πάνω από 4 χρόνια πριν (Αναφορά)

Thanks so much for the invite. Sounds like fun. I am sorry that I won't be able to make it.

Αναρτήθηκε από terit πάνω από 4 χρόνια πριν (Αναφορά)

Thank you so much for inviting me! Those are great stickers! I would love to be there, but it is a bit too far on a school night.

Αναρτήθηκε από amberenergy πάνω από 4 χρόνια πριν (Αναφορά)

I'll have to think about it. Not sure if i have plans.

Αναρτήθηκε από zoology123 πάνω από 4 χρόνια πριν (Αναφορά)

Can't make it, I have work that day.

An event I will be making the drive to South Louisiana for is the Pollination Celebration by the Tangipahoa Master Gardeners. I will be speaking during two different time slots. I would love to meet any fellow Inaturalists.
It is September 15 at the Hammond Research station.

I might be able to attend. I'll check my work schedule and see if I can get off.

Αναρτήθηκε από thefairybogmother πάνω από 4 χρόνια πριν (Αναφορά)

I will do my best to attend. Mondays and Tuesdays are my busiest days at work; as we are trapping and identifying mosquitoes those days. Incidentally, as I haven't been on iNaturalist in some time, the best way to ensure that I receive any messages is via email: loxosceles928@gmail.com. Thanks!

Αναρτήθηκε από jameswbeck πάνω από 4 χρόνια πριν (Αναφορά)

Well this is neat. I will try my best to make it.

Αναρτήθηκε από natureguydev83 πάνω από 4 χρόνια πριν (Αναφορά)

Sounds like there should be an iNaturalist meetup page!

Αναρτήθηκε από janetwright πάνω από 4 χρόνια πριν (Αναφορά)

This sounds like fun- I’ll be there! Years ago I put together a symposium on citizen science at the 2010 Entomological Society of America meeting, and it was great to talk with entomologists doing different types of citizen science work. Sampling bias was a big concern and training was an issue, but I’m sure that citizen science has progressed and I would love to hear how things are going now. Thanks for organizing this get-together!

Thanks, everyone! I look forward to meeting some of you in person. Send me a message or email me (carrie at inat(uralist) dot org) if you want to go out iNaturalisting sometime next week, or if you have any tips for where I should go! I'm staying near the convention center (Sunday night - Friday evening) and won't have a car.

Hope some of you can go to @royaltyler's talks in September, too!

Αναρτήθηκε από carrieseltzer πάνω από 4 χρόνια πριν (Αναφορά)

I’ll do my best. I’ve got some obligations earlier in the day, so I’ll have to see how things go with those.
