City Nature Challenge 2024: Fairfield and Westchester County: Biodiversity Observations

April 26 - April 29

The Maritime Aquarium is excited to bring the City Nature Challenge to Fairfield and Westchester Counties again in 2024! The City Nature Challenge is an international event where people find and document plants and wildlife in cities across the globe: a bioblitz-style competition where metro areas are in a contest against each other to see who can make the most observations of nature, who can find the most species, and who can engage the most people.

There is nature all around us, even in our cities! Knowing what species are in our city and where they are helps us study and protect them, but the ONLY way to do that is by all of us – scientists, land managers, and the community – working together to find and document the nature in our area. By participating in the City Nature Challenge, not only do you learn more about your local nature, but you can also make your city a better place – for you and other species!

The City Nature Challenge is organized by the citizen science teams at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County and the California Academy of Sciences
