Along the way, we will document our findings on the iNaturalistapp as part of the City Nature Challenge (CNC), an international competition comprised of 65 cities competing to document the most biodiversity from April 27–30. Your observations help local scientists monitor local biodiversity, and also count as entries to help Boston win the City Nature Challenge 2018!
