Eyes on Slocan Lake Biodiversity Mapping

Eyes on Slocan Lake is a biodiversity mapping project developed by the Slocan Lake Stewardship Society (SLSS) and the Selkirk Geospatial Research Centre (SGRC), with support from the Columbia Basin Watershed Network (CBWN). It aims to engage local residents and visitors by building our collective knowledge about the amazing creatures and natural features found in the Slocan Lake Watershed. This fun and interesting project uses iNaturalist to record and share everyone’s observations online. Anyone can contribute by using the iNaturalist app (iPhone or Android), or simply by uploading photos to the web. The project is located at:

We’re seeking observations of all kinds of natural life found within the boundaries of the Slocan Lake Watershed. Every creature or interesting observation of nature is a legitimate candidate for inclusion in this project—everything from small invertebrates to large mammals to orchids and lichens can be recorded here.

Thank you for joining us in learning more about the rich biodiversity of Slocan Lake! Let’s get started!
