The City Nature Challenge is back and it's bigger than ever! Running from April 26-April 29, 2019, the City Nature Challenge encourages people to get outside and document urban nature using the website and mobile app iNaturalist. This year, almost 150 cities across the world will compete to see who can make the most observations, find the most species, and engage the most people. You can participate in a public event like the ones listed below or submit observations at your own location. Just visit the website iNaturalist.org or download the mobile app, join the Minneapolis/St. Paul project, and start sharing your photos.
Use the map below to find an event near you. New events are added weekly.
Do you live outside the seven county metro area? Check out our sister event in the Twin Ports!
