Notes from our Technology Share discussion on the best nature apps for naturalists

As a parent, Judy is often frustrated by kids hanging out inside with their gadgets.  Here are some ways to get them (and us) outside WITH our gadgets and exploring the wide world around us.  We all brought some ideas and suggestions to the Library on April 22, where we shared what was on our devices. We looked at the best nature apps for naturalists.  Judy’s presentation is here on the Dewees Island Blog.  And check out Carl’s comprehensive list of PDF Field Guides to download.

Of course, too much technology can be a problem.  We found ourselves in stitches at a description of a nature tour participant who stared at an ipad with a butterfly guide, sadly mourning that “you just never see these anymore,” while butterflies flitted about nearby.
