Participate in the 2023 Greater Portland & Vancouver Metro Area City Nature Challenge with The Nature Conservancy, Portland Parks & Recreation, and Friends of Mt. Tabor Park.

The City Nature Challenge is a weekend long observation event held in over 400 cities across the globe to document the biodiversity of urban areas and to get participants to notice all of the incredible organisms that live in our communities. Sign up and participate today!

We will be working in two groups to identify the different plants, animals, and fungi that call Mt. Tabor Park in Southeast Portland home. Participants will use the iNaturalist app and support from volunteer experts to observe and identify different species.
