Quick Tips for Nature Mappers

Veteran Nature Mappers will notice changes to the data entry platform starting January 1, 2023. These changes are designed as upgrades to improve user experience by allowing citizen-scientists to submit wildlife observations “offline” on mobile devices. The upgrades also enable users to submit photos with their observations, add specialized projects with custom data fields, and enhance the platform’s overall security.

To enter your wildlife observations, you’ll need to navigate to naturemapping.jhwildlife.org or download the Nature Mapping Jackson Hole App on your mobile device or tablet. To officially get started with Nature Mapping, you will need to contact JHWF about attending a training session.

Submit your wildlife sightings

Submit sightings for casual observations, project backyard, mountain bluebird nestbox moniotoring and more at our website or via mobile app.
