City Nature Challenge is an international community science initiative organized by California Academy of Sciences and the Natural History Museum Los Angeles County that encourages people to go outside and explore the nature in their communities. In 2020, Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo and the University of Florida Department of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation IFAS Extension brought this global event to Alachua County.

Join Alachua County’s iNaturalist project and discover the plants and animals living in your backyard or local nature park during April 26-29. Not only will you find amazing creatures and plants, but iNaturalist helps you learn what you’re observing.

Check our Facebook event periodically to learn about upcoming iNaturalist trainings and opportunities to discover Alachua County nature with other community members. Our community partners are hosting opportunities daily during the challenge.

Thank you to our community partners: Alachua Conservation Trust, Alachua County Environmental Protection Department, Florida Museum of Natural History, and City of Gainesville Parks & Recreation.
