City Nature Challenge: Intro to iNaturalist

Apr 10, 2024, 6pm-8pm

Event Information

The City Nature Challenge, running April 26-29, 2024, is an annual community science event encouraging the community to record observations of local plants, animals and fungi using iNaturalist. This friendly competition with cities across the world for the most observations is a great way to get outside and learn about our local biodiversity and ecosystems and participate in science.

 iNaturalist is a nature-tracking website and app that allows the community to participate in data collection. The community science data collected through iNaturalist helps scientists and local governments to better understand and protect our region’s biodiversity.

Everyone can be a community scientist! Learn how to use iNaturalist and participate in the City Nature Challenge during this free workshop with Elora Adamson, Education Program Manager at the Compost Education Centre! The workshop will include:

  • An introduction to the iNaturalist app and website
  • Hands-on practice using iNaturalist, making observations and identification
  • Tips on how to take photos to help with identification and connecting with the iNaturalist community

Make sure to join the Greater Victoria City Nature Challenge iNaturalist project for the chance to win great prizes including a smartphone macro lens!
