2019 City Nature Challenge

The New York City Nature Challenge, hosted by Macaulay Honors College and sponsored by ConEd, is part of a global campaign to bring together nature lovers of all ages in the greenspaces of their communities to record examples of urban wildlife with smartphones.

Throughout April 26-29, public parks, preservation societies, gardens and other natural organizations around New York City’s five boroughs will host City Nature Challenge events that are open to all. Participants will be guided by Macaulay student volunteers to catalog their images using the iNaturalist smartphone app.

After observation days have ended, the iNaturalist community will help properly identify and catalog the species in a marathon tech session. and results will be publicly available.

Citizen science demonstrates that science is for everyone and can be done by anyone. Participating in scientific efforts helps to improve science literacy for all. City Nature Challenge contributes to our understanding of urban wildlife in New York City and the planet as a whole.
