Have fun and win prizes while learning about our natural environment by joining the Spring BioThon on iNaturalist.org! From now through June 19, take pictures of wild plants and critters in Randolph County nd upload them to iNaturalist for a chance to win a lunchbox, a one-of-a-kind painted garden rock from Greensboro artist Madison James LaMuraglia, and other prizes in every one of our six counties!

3. Anytime between April 23 and June 19 (the last day of spring), go out and observe wild animals and plants. Snap photos, identify the organism (the iNaturalist database will make suggestions and your hosts will help too), add your location, and save your observation.
If you have any questions or experience any problems at all, please email email@example.com. We will contact winners by messaging through iNaturalist. This contest is for educational purposes only and we respect your privacy. Winners will be chosen based on the number of different species documented (as tallied by iNaturalist) and honorable mention prizes will be chosen from our favorite observations of aquatic animals or native plants.
