Arlington Regional Master Naturalists

Arlington Regional Master Naturalists--City Nature Challenge 2019

The 2019 City Nature Challenge will be held on April 27-29, 2019.  You can help biologists understand the biodiversity of our environment by documenting the organisms you find!  Like last year, we will be using iNaturalist to capture observations. For more information about iNaturalist, see https://www.inaturalist.org/.

You can also assist by verifying the observations of others.   The identification part of the Challenge will be held from April 30 to May 5.  

The Arlington Regional Master Naturalists are sponsoring a series of events and need your help to get better data about our environment.  Events are being held in a variety of areas near you, so please sign up!  

For more information about the DC City Nature Challenge, please see https://citynaturechallengedc.org/.
