Join the project to learn about urban biodiversity, attend virtual and in-person events, and earn rewards for your observations.


City of Chandler-Community Services
The Community Services Department enhances the quality of life in Chandler through a vast provision of diverse and affordable educational and recreational experiences. Check out their ”Break Time” magazine for fun activities in every season.


Educating Children Outdoors
Through ECO, children learn about and explore nature through cross-curricular, hands-on, experiential activities, developing knowledge about, love for, and dedication to nature’s wonders. Check out their programs on their website and their iNaturalist project.


Thank you again to all of the amazing participants and collaborators. See you next year!
