City Nature Challenge | April 29 - May 2, 2022

Finding Urban Nature is as Easy as Taking a Photo! 

Nature is all around us in Northern Utah – especially in our urban settings, and each spring we join hundreds of cities around the globe to photograph nature during The City Nature Challenge! This annual international effort encourages people to find and photograph plants and wildlife in cities around the globe using iNaturalist. We call our "city" Utah's Wasatch (a combination of Box Elder, Cache, Davis, Salt Lake, Summit, Utah, Wasatch, and Weber Counties).

How to take part
