City Nature Challenge

April 26 - 29

Participate in the 2024 City Nature Challenge by joining one of our programs or volunteer events.

You can help us identify plants, animals, insects, fungi, and any other living organisms using the free smartphone application called iNaturalist. Download "iNaturalist" in the Google Play or Apple App Store.

By using the iNaturalist app to document your observations, you'll help Raleigh compete against other cities around the world in the challenge. The valuable data collected will help inform local natural resources management decisions.
