Join TNC's Trevor Edmonson for an introduction to iNaturalist and the City Nature Challenge, followed by a Nature Scavenger Hunt at Kankakee Sands!

We will make a meandering, easy, slow-paced hike to look at insects, plants, fungi and birds. We will use the iNaturalist app to help identify the species we find and also upload the observations to the iNaturalist City Nature Challenge page.

We have set a goal of making 50 observations on iNaturalist on our scavenger hunt. Bring your smartphone/devices with the free iNaturalist app downloaded.

Thanks to Friends of the Sands for partnering on this event with TNC!
