City Nature Celebration 2020

Explore the many treasures of nature in your own backyard and join the 2020 City Nature Celebration!

The City Nature Celebration is an international effort for people to find and document plants and wildlife in cities across the globe. 

Participation is easy – simply download the free iNaturalist app from the AppStore or Google Play. 

Take pictures of plants, animals and insects living around you and post to the app between April 24 – 27.   

During the identification period (April 28th – May 3rd), scientists and other experts will provide feedback to help identify the various species you have posted.
