Be a part of citizen science at the Wash!

With COVID-19 causing the cancellation or delay of several Las Vegas Wash biological surveys this year, community involvement has never been more important and thanks to citizen science and crowdsourcing tools like eBird and iNaturalist, it's never been easier.

In fact, more than 1,250 observations have been posted on iNaturalist alone since March 19, identifying over 350 plants and animals - including 20 new invertebrate species.

iNaturalist allows amateur scientists to use their mobile devices to collect observations, identify species, and share their findings online and has been used by Clark County Wetlands Park in their annual BioBlitz.
