Biodiversity Squamish

  • Project Coordinator:  Judith Holm
  • Species Checklist (updated to December 31, 2020)
  • As of December 28, 2021: 34,387 observations of 3130 species by 1785 people.

You are most welcome to participate in this community-based citizen science project to document species of non-domesticated flora, fauna and other forms of  life. The project is based in Squamish and our project boundary is the Howe Sound Watershed. We record our observations by using the free iNaturalist application on phones or computers.  We’re gathering baseline data, confirming historical records, and communicating with people working on complementary projects both within our boundary as well as throughout the Salish Sea bioregion.

To learn more about this project and how to get started, go to the Biodiversity Squamish web page, scroll down the home page of Biodiversity Squamish and click on ‘About’ this project.  Be sure to click on ‘more’ to see the full description and useful links to the iNaturalist website. iNaturalist will help you with identification, as will other iNaturalist members. You can join the Biodiversity Squamish Facebook group to share and discuss what you and others are finding.
