Or click on the ‘Share your recent sightings’ button on our website homepage. We may also post links to the posts on our Facebook page. This means that even if you are not on Facebook, you can share your sightings with the ‘Facebook audience.’ These on-line sightings could also be shared during the show-and-tell part of our regular monthly meetings when those in attendance share their sightings directly.

Please include: A few words about your sighting, i.e.  plant, animal etc. , special significance, if applicable, where it was seen, when it was seen (date e.g. October 22, 2015). And, if you wish, include your name or name of person who saw the plant, animal etc. Also, if you wish, a photo (or two) of what you saw, if you did take a photo.

Then, to see your sighting on the website, and sightings sent in by others,  find the CONNECT button on our home page and scroll down to Nature Notebook.

Thank you for keeping a record in your nature notebooks and sharing your sightings! Nature observations and record keeping are an important part of conservation.
