City Nature Challenge: The Wasatch Front

See Nature. Take Photos. Do Science. Win Prizes.

Along the Wasatch Front, we are surrounded by natural beauty in our neighborhoods, parks, open spaces, and even in our downtowns. Between April 27 and April 30, cities around the world are competing to document their urban nature with the iNaturalist app in the City Nature Challenge 2018. The Natural History Museum of Utah is leading a City Nature Challenge team for the Wasatch Front. Join our local citizen science quest to record and share the rich biodiversity in Weber, Davis, Salt Lake, and Utah Counties in the City Nature Challenge 2018: The Wasatch Front.

Accept the Challenge 

Participating in the City Nature Challenge is easy. Use iNatuarlist to contribute observations of wild plants and animals between April 27 and April 30 anyplace in Weber, Davis, Salt Lake, or Utah County.

  • Download the free iNaturalist app to your mobile device
  • Take photos to make observations of wild plants and animals in your backyard, a park, the foothills - anywhere you find nature
  • Upload your photos to iNaturalist
  • Learn more as the iNaturalist community helps identify your observations 

 Watch a short iNaturalist tutorial to learn how to make great observations.

Compete for the Wasatch Front and Win Prizes

When you record nature along the Wasatch Front, you can win prizes for yourself.

  • Make observations of 10 different wild animals or plants and receive one free admission to the Natural History Museum of Utah (limit of one admission per person).
  • The top three observers  in the City Nature Challenge 2018: The Wastach front will get to attend a special foothills walk with NHMU entomologist Christy Bills to learn expert tips for finding and identifying insects, spiders, and bugs.
