City Nature Challenge 2017: The Wasatch Front

Total observations by county

Five days of amazing nature observations!

Thanks to everyone who participated in the City Nature Challenge. We blew past 2,000 observations and are on our way to identifying 400 different species living with us along the Wasatch Front. Click here to see our project page in iNaturalist and all the observations we made.

If you made ten or more observations during the City Nature Challenge, we'll be contacting you by Saturday, April 22, through the message function in iNaturalist to make arrangements for your free admission to the Museum. Log into you iNaturalist account on your computer and click on the envelope icon in the top navigation bar to access your message.

Join us at a SLC Neighborhood Naturalist event 

SLC Neighborhood Naturalist engages citizen science volunteers—like you—in finding and identifying the wild plants and animals living in three open spaces managed by Salt Lake City. City staff will use the data we gather through iNaturalist to help guide their management and restoration efforts.
