A new smartphone-friendly interactive online mapping program is available for visitors to our nature trail; this can be used to identify plants and key features as one walks around the trail. Enable the GPS navigation location on your smartphone, and then use this map application: http://arcg.is/2f61rbX
This link to the map of the Buena Vista Audubon trail gives a base layer of a Google map with yellow dots representing plants and features. Click on the dots to bring up the name of the plant or feature. The colored shaded areas represent different ‘ecotones,’ or habitats around the trail.
