Project open to the Public!

Welcome All, a NEW iNaturalist project covering the geography of the Northern Neck of Virginia has been launched. The project is open for you to "join". We look forward to learning and exploring the natural communities of the northern neck through each others postings. And in the process help scientists and natural resource communities better understand the NN natural community.

The geography includes the Virginia counties of Lancaster, Northumberland, Richmond and Westmoreland.
