Not sure what City Nature Challenge is? Visit https://www.citynaturechallenge.org/ for more information.
Join Texas Parks & Wildlife, Texas Master Naturalists, the Audubon Society, The Nature Conservancy and others in a fun challenge to see which city can document the most species. It is easy to participate by joining an event or making observations on your own using iNaturalist — sign up on iNaturalist.org and download the App for your device: iNaturalist for iOS and iNaturalist for Android.
With the iNaturalist App, you just take a picture of a plant or animal and the community will help identify what species it is. https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/texas-big-country
Any observation made during the four days of the event in the greater metropolitan area of each city will count towards the challenge.
You can participate by exploring the life in your backyard, in your local park or on a field trip with your local naturalist group.
