ADF Naturalists Guild Challenge

ADF Naturalists Guild Challenge

A challenge for Guild members - let's create a running Nature Journal. Document the plants and animals you see as you go about your lives and share them with the Guild. The radius for this mission does NOT have to be limited to the U.S. - any members of ADF may post, regardless of where your are.

This mission has ended and is no longer accepting submissions.

50 participants 1,088 spottings

Mission complete! Thanks to everyone who participated. The special prize aspect is going to have to be bragging rights here and on the Guild page - I think I have a few spotters who are not ADF members (not everyone identified themselves well enough for me to tell). Of the folks I know for sure are members, we had a couple of people with over 300 spottings, a couple with 200+, and several with 100+. Way to be out in Nature and keep observing! Peace everyone! Deb Challenge update: Challenge will end on Spring Equinox 2013. All participating ADF members who exceed 52 spottings will get a "prize" from me. Whoever logs the most spottings will get a special "prize" from the Guild Chief. Spot on, my friends! I challenge all of you to enter at least one spotting per week for the rest of 2012. We are scattered all over the country, so this is a nice opportunity to show each other what lives where we spend our time with the Nature Spirits. And certainly add things from anyplace "cool" that you visit away from home! If you spot something you can't identify, this is a great opportunity to learn something new because there's a good chance someone will be able to ID it for you. At a minimum, please post at least 1 photo and the location. If you can add more, please do (feel free to look at my Noah page as an example - User: dcfieldview)
