City Nature Challenge: Utah's Wasatch


Joining the fun is as easy as taking a photo! 

Nature is all around us in Northern Utah, and we need your help to photograph it during the City Nature Challenge! This 4-day annual event encourages people to find and photograph plants and wildlife in their own cities using iNaturalist. We call our local city Utah's Wasatch (a combination of Box Elder, Cache, Davis, Salt Lake, Summit, Utah, Wasatch, and Weber Counties). As one of over 900 participating cities in 2024, Utah's Wasatch made over 9,100 observations during the CNC, contributing to over 2 million observations made around the world! How many iNaturalist observations can we make in 2025? 

-The City Nature Challenge will be back April 25-28, 2025!- 

Here's how to take part:

Take Photos of Wild Things April 25-28, 2025
  • This includes ANY plants, animals, fungi, etc. that you see in Box Elder, Cache, Davis, Salt Lake, Summit, Utah, Wasatch, and Weber counties!
  • The more photos we take, the more of Utah's biodiversity we record 
Add Photos to iNaturalist
  • It's a free platform you can use on a phone or computer. Every observation made within our project boundaries will automatically count towards the 2025 CNC!
