Join with others in the St. Louis Region by participating in the City Nature Challenge. Upcoming: April 26-29, 2019.

Calling all nature enthusiasts, citizen scientists and ecology experts:

Please join the City and others in the St. Louis Metro Region for the 2019 City Nature ChallengeApril 26-May 5, 2019. We need your participation! 

The St. Louis Region had a very strong showing in the STL City Nature Challenge 2018, which involved 65 cities around the world -- each striving to observe as many species of wild plants, birds and animals as possible during the City Nature Challenge period. The 2019 City Nature Challenge will include more than 160 cities around the world.

The City of St. Louis uses the City Nature Challenge as an opportunity to help build the City’s Urban Biodiversity Inventory through citizen science observations with the free iNaturalist app. New iNaturalist features will be added to make this effort even more useful during the 2019 City Nature Challenge.
