Join Raleigh in the Worldwide City Nature Challenge

Join us at our nature preserves and parks to identify plants, animals, insects, fungi, and any other living organisms using the free smartphone application, iNaturalist. Download "iNaturalist" in the Google Play or Apple App store.

By using the iNaturalist app to document your observations, you'll not only help Raleigh compete against other cities around the world in the challenge, but the valuable ecological information collected will help guide local natural resources management decisions and contribute to international scientific studies. We hope you can join in on the fun!
