How to use iNaturalist for the City Nature Challenge 2024

Started in 2016 as a competition between San Francisco and Los Angeles, the City Nature Challenge (CNC) has grown into an international event, motivating people around the world to find and document wildlife in their cities. Run by the Community Science teams at the California Academy of Sciences and the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, the CNC is an annual four-day global bioblitz at the end of April, where cities are in a collaboration-meets-friendly-competition to see not only what can be accomplished when we all work toward a common goal, but also which city can gather the most observations of nature, find the most species, and engage the most people in the event. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2024 City Nature Challenge will not only be focused on competition; instead we want to embrace the healing power of nature and celebrate tens of thousands of people all around the world, searching for and documenting their local biodiversity, together in this event.

Do you want to participate? Join us for the 2024 City Nature Challenge! We want your observations of the nature near you! Help us document the incredible biodiversity of cities around the world 28 April - 1 May. Visit the list of CNC cities using Observation, or the CNC website, to see the full list of cities participating in the 10th annual City Nature Challenge, and be sure to check the boundaries of the CNC bioblitzes by zooming in on the map. Many cities include their larger metro areas.
