City Nature Challenge 2019: The Wasatch

What is the City Nature Challenge?

We are surrounded by nature in our neighborhoods, parks, and even in our downtowns. From April 26-29, 2019, residents of cities around the world are competing to document their local nature with iNaturalist. The city with the most observations of nature or who finds the most species is crowned the winner. The Natural History Museum of Utah is leading a City Nature Challenge team of seven counties (Box Elder, Cache, Weber, Davis, Salt Lake, Summit and Utah), for a unified "city" we are calling "The Wasatch."
