The 2020 City Nature Challenge is a world-wide event where cities compete to see who can log the most flora/fauna/fungi entries into a science-based app called, “iNaturalist.” The event promotes citizen science and helps showcase the biodiversity of our amazing “plains to peaks” community. It’s a fantastic opportunity for members of the public to engage in our local public lands in a unique way. This event is similar to a BioBlitz, but on a city-wide scale in a competitive setting. The City Nature Challenge takes place on April 24th-27th.
