Global City Nature Challenge Video!

The folks at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County and the California Academy of Sciences have released a video for the CNC 2021! Check out the video below to find out more about how participating in the CNC Regina and Area project helps a global citizen science initiative!

"What is the City Nature Challenge?

Invented by citizen science staff at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County (Lila Higgins) and California Academy of Sciences (Alison Young). The City Nature Challenge is an international effort for people to find and document plants and wildlife in cities across the globe. It’s a bioblitz-style competition where cities are in a contest against each other to see who can make the most observations of nature, who can find the most species, and who can engage the most people.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we made some modifications to City Nature Challenge 2020 to help keep our organizers and participants safe. Firstly, CNC 2020 pivoted to be a collaboration rather than a competition. Instead, we wanted to embrace the healing power of nature and encourage the celebratory aspect of the CNC. This allowed people to safely document biodiversity in whatever way they could, even from the safety of their own homes. We urged all participants to carefully follow public health guidelines provided by their local governments, as they are changed in real-time. Individual safety and public health were and will be our utmost priority."
