City Nature Challenge 2023

city nature challenge post 2023 April 28 – May 1

The fifth annual Calgary City Nature Challenge is back to celebrate the biodiversity living within our urban ecosystem! Show the world the amazing nature that can be found in Calgary by sharing your photos of flora and fauna to the iNaturalist app. 500 cities from across the globe will compete to see which can make the most nature observations, document the most species, and engage the most people. 41 cities in Canada will take part in 2023.

Help put Calgary’s urban biodiversity on the map April 28-May 1! Explore anywhere in Calgary, Airdrie, Cochrane, Okotoks, Rocky View County, or Foothills County. Take photos of any birds, plants, insects, mammals, fungi, and even microorganisms you encounter and upload them to the iNaturalist app before May 7. The global and Canadian results will be announced on May 8. Your observations not only help Calgary to be recognized for nature but also lend to conservation research.

Take part in a park bioblitz or go rogue with friends and family while you explore your city under a new lens. Your observations will not only help put Calgary in the City Nature Challenge but also helps researchers and scientists study our local urban biodiversity like never before.
