Want to help show the rest of the world just how amazing North Carolina’s citizen scientists are? Join TLC for the City Nature Challenge! This competition pits several American cities against each other to see who can document the most biodiversity on the iNaturalist app over a 4-day period. We likely need over 30,000 submissions to have a shot of taking home the gold, so we need YOUR help snapping photos of Triangle Area plants, animals, or fungi between April 26-29 and submitting them online. We’ve got some great prizes for the top three local contributors as a thank you, too!
Don’t want to ID alone? Join us on a guided Biodiversity Walk to spend a concentrated hour and a half exploring Horton Grove Nature Preserve and documenting as many species as we can! This preserve has a wide range of habitats for great diversity. We will go over a demonstration of how to use iNaturalist, then get started with our walk! We will be taking pictures and identifying species as we go. This information not only will help us compete in the challenge, but will provide valuable documentation of what species we have living on the preserve.
