City Nature Challenge
April 28 - May 1
Join us to learn about the incredible diversity of plants and wildlife that can be found on and around Randall’s Island Park. Use iNaturalist to document and identify plants and animals. All observations will contribute to the City Nature Challenge, a global competition to find out which city in the world can do the most to observe nature. Come out and explore Randall’s Island Park while making New York City number one for nature! Visit our Natural Areas Booth at the Earth Day Festival to learn more.
