City Nature Challenge is over

The first Seattle City Nature Challenge is now over.

Thank you to everyone who participated and helped ID observations!! Seattle currently stands at 1,524 observations and 395 species.

Remember, you have until 9 am on the 22nd to add your observations from the 14th-18th to be counted towards the City Nature Challenge total numbers.

The entire City Nature Challenge has now reached 109,005 observations nationwide!

There is still time to help identify species to improve our species seen numbers. If you have the time and skills to identify, please do!

Thank you again to everyone who participated and made our first City Nature Challenge a success. We may not have won, but we did very well and had some excellent observations, including a coyote and orcas!
