Naturedigger was launched in 2012 with the purpose of educating people of all ages about the cool side of nature.. We do this by taking comprehensive photos of plants and wildlife in every habitat and season, and never just "tell" you about a species, we always "show" you what you want to see... Naturedigger is on a mission to protect our native plants and restore wildlife diversity by removing invasive species like Japanese knotweed, oriental bittersweet, black swallow-wort, Japanese barberry, multiflora rose, autumn olive and other nasty invasives that relentlessly attack and take over our landscape.. We hope you come back and check out the status of projects we're doing to remove invasive species and watch our progress as we follow up on the sites year after year to see if (when) we've won the battle! There will be volunteer opportunities available in New Hampshire for removing invasive species, so be on the lookout for those as well as new apps that will educate and entertain and help you better appreciate the natural world. We are currently developing our second app, Monarch SOS, so definitely check back for updates. The app will be released in three phases. Phase I is for monarch and milkweed identification. Phases II and III will include monarch reporting.
If you haven't checked out our first app, Rash Plants, we highly recommend it. Too many people suffer from the horrendous, itchy, oozing rash caused by oils from poison ivy, oak and sumac, because they can't correctly identify the plants throughout the seasons. We have over 600 photos of the plants to help you not only learn them well, but also be able to correctly identify their similar species. It's the only resource of its kind that covers absolutely everything you could possibly need to know about these plants.
