Webinar: iNaturalist City Nature Challenge April 29-May 2: How to Participate!

Date: April 21, 2022

Time: 12:00pm - 1:00pm PT

Every year, the Community Science teams at the California Academy of Sciences and the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County runs an international event motivating people around the world to find and document the wild flora and fauna in (and around) their cities. Last year over 400 cities took part, and this year ISCBC has made a coordinated effort to organize several local projects contributing to the CNC around the province. If you are interested in participating in your area, be sure to attend this webinar – we will be covering the importance of community science, how to join and contribute to the CNC, how to use iNaturalist, and everything else you need to know about participating in this wonderful global effort!
