Join an international quest to record urban nature
Cities across the world are competing to document their urban nature between April 26 and April 29 in the City Nature Challenge 2019. Join the Natural History Museum of Utah at the Fred and Ila Rose Fife Wetland Preserve on the Jordan River on Saturday, April 27, between 10:00 am and 2:00 p.m. for a City Nature Challenge biobltiz. All the observations you make will count toward the City Nature Challenge AND help guide the management of the wetland preserve.
