Regina and Area City Nature Challenge

April 27, 2021

"In the face of the pandemic, finding ways to come together safely as a community may be challenging, but they’re also more important than ever. This year, Nature Regina, the Royal Saskatchewan Museum, Friends of Wascana Marsh, Nature Saskatchewan and the Nature Conservancy of Canada are partnering to host a COVID-19 safe citizen science initiative, the City Nature Challenge, that takes place April 30th through May 3rd. The City Nature Challenge is an international collaboration organized by the California Academy of Sciences and the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. From wide-open spaces with plenty of room for social distancing to the biodiversity in people’s backyards, there are tons of safe ways for people within the Regina area to document native plant and animal species for science while fostering a sense of local--and global--community. 

How can you take part in the challenge? It’s easy! (1) Create a free account through iNaturalist.ca, (2) Record photos or sounds of plants and animals you see around the city April 30th through May 3rd, (3) upload your observations and locations using the iNaturalist app or digital camera photos to iNaturalist.ca. All observations made within a 55 km radius of Regina during the challenge will automatically be uploaded to the CNC 2021: Regina and Area project."
