Join Arlington County staff in a fun global citizen science challenge!
Last year 68 cities joined in world-wide, and as part of the DC Metro area team, Arlington came in 5th place in the number of nature observations posted and 4th overall with 876 participants!
This year we can do even better as more than 100 cities are planning to participate, documenting species observations by posting pictures of plants and animals to the City Nature Challenge using the free iNaturalist app. You don’t even need to know what the animal or plant is, with people worldwide helping to identify your observation. This information is used by scientists and nature lovers worldwide.
Any observation made during the four-day (April 26-29) challenge will count for the DC Metro Team. So save the dates as there will be many chances to participate, either on your own or with a local event.
