The end of last week we shipped out 33,000 cards for our park staff to hand out to visitors to let them know about our partnership with WildObs.
It’s one thing to take a great shot of nature in the wild. But Crystal also knows the proper name for the creature. As an “office weanie” that’s not my specialty. I’m lucky if I can identify the major species – bird, reptile, fish, mammal.
Iam not sure if I found out about WildObs initially from Crystal or found it on Twitter like I found @rangerous, but Crystal has certainly been generous in her sharing of wildlife observations at our parks that she has visited. In fact, according to her profile on WildObs, she has 193 encounters posted in one year. Actually, yesterday was her WildObs first anniversary.
We have been working hard to get our staff to post observations from our parks so visitors will know what wildlife to expect to see when they visit. Crystal has certainly helped make that happen!
