About this Event
The City Nature Challenge is an international effort for people to find and document plants and wildlife in cities across the globe. This year, the Paleontological Research Institution is organizing Ithaca's very first year particpating in the challenge.
Using the free iNaturalist app, let’s work together virtually with cities around the world to safely document biodiversity in whatever way we can, even at home or in our neighborhoods.
Kicking off April 30, the challenge runs to the end of the day May 3. Participation is easy! All you need is a camera and the free iNaturalist app.
Identification of the photographed species will be crowd-sourced through the online community May 4 – May 9.
We urge all participants to follow current public health guidelines provided by local governments.
Ithaca & the Finger Lakes region join 250 cities on 6 continents in an effort to document global biodiversity.
