MCCD to showcase nature-sharing website

CRYSTAL LAKE – The birds, bugs and other beasts spotted on hikes can be shared online – and the McHenry County Conservation District plans on showing people how.

At a workshop scheduled for 1:30 to 3 p.m. Saturday, June 21, at Prairieview Education Center, 2112 Behan Road, Crystal Lake, attendees will learn how to set up an account on a website Project Noah and post photographs taken on a short hike to the website.

Project Noah is designed to let people share what their nature photos with the goal of documenting all the world's organisms and to build a database for ecological preservation and education.

Those interested in attending the workshop should bring a digital camera or smartphone.

The program is free for county residents and $2 for non-residents. It is open to adults and families ages 5 and up. The deadline to register is June 17.

Registration is accepted online at the McHenry Conservation District website MCCDistrict.org, by phone (free programs only) at (815) 479-5779, by mail and walk-in at Prairieview Education Center, 2112 Behan Road in Crystal Lake, or walk-in only at Lost Valley Visitor Center, Route 31 and Harts Road in Ringwood.
