Reserve Mapper

The reservemapper application helps users discover natural history observations and specimens associated with each of the Berkeley-based field stations.  The reservemapper draws on data from the Berkeley EcoEngine and species occurrence data hosted by the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF). 



Document the organisms you encounter at NRS reserves with photos and more, and add those observations to the list of reserve species kept on iNaturalist. The iNaturalist NRS list is organized by reserve.
