City Nature Challenge Observation Deadline Midnight
11:59 pm Monday, April 29, 2019 is the deadline for observations to be made in Calgary. Make sure you get all of your observations photographed within Calgary before midnight! You have until May 5 at midnight to post all of your observations for them to count towards Calgary’s entry in the City Nature Challenge competition. Post your observations as soon as you can so we can work on identifying them and get our species count way up!
If you weren’t able to get outside and document Calgary’s flora and fauna, you can still participate until May 5 by helping us identify species! This portion of the competition is open to anyone, anywhere in the world. Invite your friends and family to participate. We need all the help we can get and you don’t need to be an expert!
To make identifications, create an iNaturalist account and explore Calgary’s Observations made. Explore what has been posted and identify a minimum of one species to be counted as a participant. iNaturalist will make suggestions and help you to learn about the world’s biodiversity. Any identification you make will help Calgary’s CNC entry! The deadline for identifications is May 5!
