    Spend the an hour or a day outside exploring with your family in this fun bio blitz-style event called the “City Nature Challenge.” It’s easy – look for and find wildlife and plants, take a picture, and share it to iNaturalist (this can happen back at home also).

    City Nature Challenge 2021

    Calvert County is part of the City Nature Challenge of the Washington DC region. 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 2021 City Nature Challenge.

    During the weekend of April 30-May 3, 2021 individuals and groups will be on the hunt for animals, plants, mushrooms, and other life forms. These observations will be documented on iNaturalist and counted towards our region's tally.

    Information on the City Nature Challenge and a listing of naturalist led events will be listed there.

    To participate, download the iNaturalist app and creating an account.

    Reservations are not required, but will help us track participation and for holding informal, spontaneous hikes.
