Celebrate Earth Day with the City Nature Challenge!

Posted: April 18, 2019

There is nature all around us, even in our cities! Knowing which species live where helps scientists better protect urban wildlife—but they need your help! By participating in the upcoming City Nature Challenge, you can learn more about your local flora and fauna while helping scientists document the nature in your neighborhood. From April 26 - 29, over 150 cities on six continents are competing to make the most observations of wild plants and animals in their areas. All you need is the free mobile app iNaturalist to join in on the fun.
