It's up to YOU, New York! We need all New Yorkers to help find all of the creatures that call our city home. Will you help us win this challenge and show off our city's biodiversity? In both the paved and green spaces of our city, many species survive and thrive. We're asking all New Yorkers - residents, visitors, commuters, students, teachers, pedestrians, park lovers, parents, children, EVERYONE - to become citizen scientists and help us make as many iNaturalist observations as we can. Will you join us in this community science quest to catalog our city's great biodiversity?
Participation is EASY and FREE! Download the iNaturalist app to your mobile device. During the time from April 24-27, use the app to upload photos of organisms to the iNaturalist and the iNaturalist community will help you identify them. It's as simple as that!
There will be many free public events associated with the Challenge that you can attend all over the city. Join the iNaturalist project so you can see the full list as we get closer to the challenge: https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/city-nature-challenge-2020-new-york-city
