BATON ROUGE CITY NATURE CHALLENGE
The City Nature Challenge is a four-day friendly nature competition that goes on across the globe April 30 to May 3, 2021.
We are competing against the Greater New Orleans area, the Southwest Louisiana area and other cities all over the world!
The goal is to see which city can show the most wildlife in their area, including wild plants, animals, insects, mushrooms, fish, turtles — everything! Let’s show off Baton Rouge’s amazing wildlife diversity and unique ecosystems.
TAKING PART IS EASY!
- Find wildlife. It could be a bird, insect, plant or any other sign of life.
- Take a picture. Snap a photo of what you find with your smart phone or digital camera.
- Share! Upload your observation to iNaturalist.org or with the iNaturalist mobile app and it will be automatically added to the contest project.
Any observations made in these parishes during the official event period will automatically count toward the challenge: Ascension, Assumption, East Baton Rouge, East Feliciana, Iberville, Livingston, Pointe Coupee, St. Helena, St. James, Tangipahoa, West Baton Rouge, and West Feliciana.
