Calling all nature lovers and community scientists in Texas!
From April 28, 2023 - May 1, 2023 Texas will join over 400 global cities for the City Nature Challenge, an annual competition to observe and record plant, fungi and wildlife species at your home, school or a local or state park!
Participating in the City Nature Challenge is easy:
- From April 28, 2023 – May 1, 2023, find wildlife or plants in your community—or even in your own backyard.
- Take a picture!
- Join a project near you, and share your observations through iNaturalist, an app that allows community members to record what they see in nature and interact with other nature enthusiasts.
*No iNaturalist project nearby? No problem! It's not necessary to contribute to a project to enjoy using the app. Making and identifying observations are by far the most important part of iNaturalist.
