Each of the park passports contains a QR code to trail maps and useful information about thepark. There’s also a QR code provided by Peter Hernandez that takes the viewer to a park-specific list of species shared in iNaturalist.
Each park has a “mission” that will bring focus to a particular aspect of nature; facts about the park’s flora and fauna; encouragement to observe some of the highlighted features; some questions to be answered; plus, a journaling page to capture what was seen with sketches and field notes.
The passport pages are meant to be printed double-sided (or used electronically) & folded as a booklet on 28lb. paper. Print on both sides and click on drop down – Flip on short edge.
