CNC YYC 2021

City Nature Challenge Calgary is back for it’s third year in a row! Help document urban flora and fauna April 30-May 3 in your backyard, neighborhoods, and local parks! CNC YYC boundaries are for everywhere within the municipal boundaries of Calgary, Cochrane, Okotoks, Airdrie, and Chestermere. If you would like to see a nearby urban area added to our project, please email with your ideas! Please join our CNC YYC 2021 iNaturalist project!

The stakes are higher than ever with 25 Canadian cities and regions participating. Check out the Canadian areas you can participate in across the country by viewing the CNC 2021 Canada Project. It’s still a collaboration but let’s showcase the incredible biodiversity found in our area. Stay tuned for more information in the coming months!

CNC YYC is run completely by volunteer organizers. If you’re part of a local stewardship group or municipality and would like to contribute to the promotion of the event, offer your skillsets, or make a donation please contact to learn more.
