Announcing the dates for the 2023 City Nature Challenge - start getting ready today!

The dates have been set for the 2023 City Nature Challenge: the CNC 4 day 'observing' event will take place between Friday April 28 and Monday May 1st; participants have until May 7th to finish uploading observations; observations may be identified as soon as the CNC starts until midnight on May 7th. Final global results will be announced on May 8th.

In past years we asked local iNatters if they were ready for an unforgettable adventure and then proceeded to provide lots of information about iNaturalist, the global City Nature Challenge, and about the various local areas registered to participate.

Despite the pandemic many Maritimers were able to get outdoors and explore their backyards and/or areas within their restricted areas. Getting out and observing nature was and is still a simple way to reduce stress.

Who knows what 2023 will bring. Hopefully the sun will come out and people can get outdoors, explore, observe nature, and share their observations with iNat. Hopefully people will be willing to travel to different CNC areas.

The City Nature Challenge is a global event and it is an opportunity to highlight our part of the world. Nationally many cities from across Canada registered to participate in the 2022 CNC and our Atlantic region placed well on the Canadian leaderboard.

Join this 2023 umbrella project TODAY and follow our Facebook page for more news and updates for all the Atlantic/Maritime entries.
