City Nature Challenge is a global collaborative effort to find and document wildlife observations of all kinds (birds, insects, plants, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and more) on iNaturalist from April 28th to May 1st, and help ID sightings through May 7th. Over 400 cities on 6 continents are participating in the 8th annual City Nature Challenge!
City Nature Challenge and iNaturalist promote community science, in which all of us can participate in exploring and studying nature, and documenting urban biodiversity along with scientists.
Learn more about the global City Nature Challenge at https://citynaturechallenge.org/. Stay informed about City Nature Challenge ABQ and find out about upcoming events! This is a great opportunity for folks of all ages to get outside this spring and explore nature. Start making observations now to learn the program--it is amazing how often it will identify what you have spotted right away, but someone may identify it in the days or weeks later, too!
