Mark Your Calendars for the 2020 City Nature Challenge!

First off, I want to apologize for making the project area smaller this year (just Cook, Lake, McHenry, Kane, DuPage, and Will counties). There is another CNC being run in Rockford and there was some confusion with the boundaries. We also would have had one of the largest areas out of over 200 participating cities, and it's a much more manageable size now.

Anyway, the dates this year are April 24-27, be sure to follow the new project for regular updates at

We plan to have a lot going on for the CNC this year; guided walks, iNaturalist workshops, and intense BioBlitzs (more like a big day for those into birds), are just a few examples, if you want to run an event for us, please contact Oliver Burrus at

Could you give a little more information about the project area? Is it the Chicago city limits?

Nope, kinda worded it wrong, it's Cook, Lake, McHenry, Kane, DuPage, and Will counties.
