City Nature Challenge
Celebrate Our Local Nature, Join in the City Nature Challenge
For the first time ever, the University of Iowa joined 400+ cities around the world to document nature as part of the City Nature Challenge! From April 29th – May 2nd, 2022, people in Iowa City photographed plants and animals in backyards, in parks, along city streets, on school grounds, and in many other spots in Iowa City. They used the iNaturalist app to upload their photos to the Iowa City project!
Check out what was discovered in Iowa City during the City Nature Challenge!
