Islandwood and the Bainbridge Island Land Trust are leading Kitsap County in participating in the 2020 City Nature Challenge – a nature observation event using the iNaturalist app.

 

The City Nature Challenge will take place in two parts:

 

  • April 24 – 27: Observe! Take and upload pictures of wild plants and animals
  • April 28 – May 4: Identify the observations

 

Are you interested in participating in City Nature Challenge 2020? Do you want to help motivate other people to participate? What questions do you have about participating in City Nature Challenge in light of current public health guidelines due to the COVID-19 pandemic?

 

Learn more about the challenge and how to participate by joining us for a webinar on Monday, April 20!

 

Featuring Islandwood Community Education Manager Mary Meier, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Area Habitat Biologist Nam Siu, and SciStarter staff members Robin Salthouse and Caroline Nickerson, this webinar will explore the importance of documenting biodiversity in Kitsap County. We will also introduce you to iNaturalist, the online biodiversity observation tool used for this challenge, and share tips for making and documenting observations of the many wild plants and animals that call Kitsap County home. You will also learn how to help your family, friends, and community members participate in City Nature Challenge. We will provide time for discussion about how to safely participate in the challenge, given current social distancing guidelines.
