City Nature Challenge
Get ready to help put Louisiana on the map during the four-day international nature competition—which involves identifying trees, shrubs, birds, and other flora and fauna. For four days, participants need only seek out the wildlife in their area—birds, insects, or plants—and snap a picture. Upload your observations to inaturalist.org or with the iNaturalist mobile app to be added to the competition, representing competing cities: Baton Rouge, Southwest Louisiana, and New Orleans. Observations made in Ascension, Assumption, East Baton Rouge, East Feliciana, Iberville, Livingston, Pointe Coupee, St. Helena, St. James, Tangipahoa, West Baton Rouge, and West Feliciana will count toward Baton Rouge. By playing, participants are also gathering open-source data that helps local agencies and research scientists. citynaturechallenge.org.
