The City Nature Challenge invites cities around the world to compete to see who can make the most observations of nature, find the most species, and engage the most people in the 2019 Challenge!
This bioblitz-style event engages citizens in a biodiversity documenting spree from April 26-29. The aim of the international project is to engage the public in expanding our understanding of urban biodiversity. This citizen science-based challenge began in 2016 and has yielded observations of thousands of species, including hundreds of threatened or endangered species!
How to Participate?
All you have to do is get outside –think Forest Park, campus, or even your own backyard, snap a picture of a wild plant or animal, and upload the photo to the free iNaturalist app, or send it to email@example.com. The Tyson Conservation Corps, along with many other organizations in the St. Louis area, will be participating. Join us!
