Calling all naturalists and wildlife enthusiasts in the Baltimore area! Please consider participating in the City Nature Challenge – a friendly international citizen science competition to see which metropolitan area can make the most observations of wildlife and identify the most species in their city.  The challenge starts this Friday, April 26 and continues until Monday, April 29 in over 160 cities around the globe.  Baltimore finished in the top 25 cities last year and we want to do even better this year.  All observations made and uploaded to iNaturalist during the challenge in Baltimore City, Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Harford, Howard and Queen Anne’s counties count toward Baltimore’s City Nature Challenge totals.

Attend an event or simply take a walk outside and record your observations with the iNaturalist app. For more information and a for comprehensive list of the 20+ events happening in the Baltimore area, please see the Baltimore City Nature Challenge webpage.

Thank you for your support and go Baltimore!
