This weekend! If you’re wondering what Invertefest is, it’s an excuse to crawl around and get on your knees and get dirty rummaging around your house and yard and the park, looking for all kinds of miscellaneous invertebrates. If you’re on the coast, get out to the beach! The whole point is just to notice all the bugs and spiders and jelly fish and worms and beetles and grubs and flies that surround you. The instructions:
- Find invertebrates. This can be in your basement, your yard, the local park, the beach, an alley or anywhere near where you live.
- Share observations. Share photos, videos or art of your discoveries on Twitter using the hashtag #invertefest.
- Interact. Search the #invertefest hashtag for tweets and share, comment and learn.
- Bonus – citizen science. To contribute your observations for science, upload your photos to iNaturalist.
Huh. I do all that all the time already. I guess I’ll just do it more this weekend.
