From April 27th-30th, 60 cities around the world will have a friendly competition to see whose citizens can document their biodiversity best using iNaturalist - it's the 2018 City Nature Challenge, and we want to put the Bay Area on top!
Use your smartphone to monitor nature's recovery after the October 2017 Nuns Fire, which burned approximately 60% of Trione-Annadel State Park. Using the iNatrualist app, we will photograph as many living things as we can find in an area that burned. Please be prepared for a moderate hike of up to 4 miles for this event.
As a part of the City Nature Challenge 2018, the California Lichen Society (CALS) will lead a short hike on Sat, April 28, 2018, on the Old Page Mill Trail in the Russian Ridge Open Space Preserve (San Mateo county).
Join staff from the UCSC Natural Reserves, the Ken Norris Center for Natural History, legions of enthusiastic UCSC students & alumni, and members of the Santa Cruz community as we come together for a morning of exploring and documenting our campus's incredible biodiversity.
In partnership with the San Francisco Public Library and Bay Nature, come explore the Noe Valley neighborhood and look for nature great and small as part of the 2018 international City Nature Challenge.
Welcome to the 2018 City Nature Challenge! This afternoon / evening BioBlitz of Briones Regional Park, part of the East Bay Regional Park District, will serve to both document species and to help the Bay Area get a leg up for the win!
