City Nature Challenge 2019: Baltimore

Holding a Turtle Up

The National Aquarium is proud to serve as the local coordinator for the 2019 City Nature Challenge. This fun, friendly international competition taking place in more than 100 cities around the globe is designed to encourage citizen scientists to get outside and get nerdy with nature, spotting as many species of animals and plants as possible and tracking their sightings in the user-friendly iNaturalist app. Select from one of several local BioBlitz or nature walk events taking place throughout the weekend of April 26 through 29 or download iNaturalist and find your own fun.

Nature is all around us, even in urban areas! By pledging to support the Baltimore region in the City Nature Challenge, you'll help to show the world the depth and breadth of our region's impressive array of flora and fauna—and you'll have a great time exploring the natural world around you. Pledge to join us, download the app and help us boost Baltimore to victory!
