City Nature Challenge

About the City Nature Challenge

Cities around the world will be competing to see who can make the most observations of nature, find the most species, and engage the most people in the 2019 City Nature Challenge happening from April 26th-29th.  Join FIU SEAS and our partner organizations in Miami in an effort to engage the city in this Citizen-science project and show the world the biodiversity of our land and water! Citizen-science is key to secure the future of our local environmental resources and build a sustainable and resilient Miami. We will be posting more information about how to get involved and attend events around the city in the coming months. Stayed tuned! 

Get Involved!

Interested in participating in Miami's City Nature Challenge? Join events accross Miami-Dade county or make observations on your own! 

How it Works

  1. Find wildlife - Any plant, animal, fungi, or evidence of life (shells, fur, scat, etc.)
  2. Take a photo - Make sure it is in focus and don't forget to record the location
  3. Share your observation - Upload your photo to iNaturalist. If your observation is in a Miami-Dade County location during April 26-29, 2019, it will automatically be added to the challenge.
