It’s time for the fall City Nature Challenge! We need YOUR help documenting the plants and animals along Riverfront North from September 25th (Friday) to September 28th (Monday),
Knowing what species are in our city and where they are helps us study and protect them, but the only way to do that is by all of us – scientists, land managers, and the community – working together to find and document nature in Philly. By participating, not only do you learn more about your local nature, but you can also make your city a better place – for you and other species! Also, if you capture the most species in our Riverfront North region, you’ll win cool swag and a Trailblazer status!
- Download the iNaturalist app onto your smartphone.
- Find any wild thing. It can be any wild plant, animal, fungi, or any other evidence of life ( fur, tracks, shells, scat, etc.) found in Philly – including your own backyard!
- Take pictures or video of what you find using the iNaturalist app.
- Learn more as your observations get identified.*
* all you have to do is snap a photo – a professional will help you identify your observation through the app
THE PERSON WITH THE MOST UPLOADED SPECIES WILL AUTOMATICALLY RECEIVE LEVEL 2 TRAILBLAZER BENEFITS!
