iNaturalist City Nature Challenge
April 27, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Join us to learn about the incredible diversity of plants and wildlife that can be found on and around Randall’s Island. Participants will learn how to use iNaturalist to document and identify plants and animals. All of the observations will go towards the City Nature Challenge, a global competition to find out which city in the world can do the most to observe nature. Last year New York City finished in ninth place, just behind Boston, and ahead of Chicago. This year 60 cities are competing worldwide, and with your help, we hope to finish in the top ten! Bring your charged smartphone.
Location: North end of Icahn Stadium
