Massachusetts is home to a great diversity of life, from the Berkshires to Boston to the Bay. Join us for the Boston iNaturalist City Nature Challenge – a fun competition with cities across the country to document the most species during April 27 – 30, 2018. You can participate by joining an event or documenting the plants, animals, and fungi you see anywhere in the greater Boston area with the iNaturalist app. See the map below for the area we will cover.

The Boston City Nature Challenge is organized by Environmental Studies at Brandeis University, UMass Boston, Zoo New England, New England Ocean Science Education Collaborative, Mass Audubon, Encyclopedia of Life at Harvard Museum of Comparative Zoology, MIT Senseable lab, and Earthwatch Institute.

Hello Boston CNC Participants,

The City Nature Challenge (CNC) is back! This year the CNC is international with 65 cities worldwide participating in this global effort to document urban biodiversity. We are spearheading the Boston Area campaign for 2018 and are again focusing within the I-495 corridor and out to Stellwagen Bank to discover and document our unique biodiversity.
