Join us for the Boston Area City Nature Challenge, a fun competition across the world — 65 cities, 17 countries, and 5 continents — to document the most species from April 27 — 30 using the iNaturalist app!
We need people (i.e. you) to help us take observations (e.g. taking photos with your phone) of as many species as possible to record nature in and around Boston. All species count! This information will help create a more accurate picture of Boston area's biodiversity, focusing within the I-495 corridor and out to Stellwagen Bank. Any observation of plants, animals, fungi, even microbes, in the greater Boston area made during these days will count for the challenge.
Get started by downloading the iNaturalist app (it's free!) in the iTunes or Google Play store, create an account, and join the City Nature Challenge Boston Area Project to make sure your observations will count!
