BioBlitz 2021

Join us as we use iNaturalist to collect observations of the web of life in the Whilamut Natural Area and at our Learnscape as part of the City Nature Challenge 2021! Participants of all ages will take photos of plants, animals, insects, and fungi and upload them to iNaturalist. You don’t need to be a skilled naturalist to join in the fun and learning. Visit our Natural Neighbors Project page to learn how to set up your iNaturalist account. Registration required.
