Riverside Nature Spotter

By City Of Riverside

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Ever seen a cool looking bug and want to know more about it? Or need help identifying a plant you’ve seen at the park? Welcome to the City of Riverside’s Citizen Science Nature Spotter app – a handy tool that helps nature lover’s record their observations, whether it be an insect, plant, animal, or anything else. Spotters can send a photo or video with questions about what they’ve seen and a Naturalist will reply with feedback. Observations will be collected and used to create an online database to share with fellow Nature Spotters. So get outdoors, open the app, take or choose a photo/video, and send with your comments or questions!

This application was developed by City of Riverside, CA Information Technology Department working with Riverside Metropolitan Museum, the Parks, Recreation, and Community Services Department, and their Riverside Citizen Science partners.

The Nature Spotter can be downloaded for free from the Apple iOS AppStore by searching keyword “Naturespotter”

I have had this app on my phone for over a year and it has been helpful identifying insects in and around my home. It hasn't taken more than 24hrs to receive a response as to what the bug is and all the accompanying information that goes with it. I love this app!

Awesome app

I ave been using this app for 2 years now. Never disappoints when I need to find out the name of a bug or plant I find in and around my home.


This app is just a photo uploader, what's awful is that you can not download it with a iPad Pro 9.7-wifi, it is just not supported.
