The City Nature Challenge observation period has ended--bring on the IDs!

Thank you to all who participated in the City Nature Challenge 2021: Regina and Area observation period! Now begins the identification period that runs May 4th through May 9th.

For those of you that are familiar with iNaturalist, you know how important it is to achieve a “Research Grade” status through the iNaturalist app in order for the efforts of citizen scientists to qualify for useable data. A minimum of two agreeing IDs are needed before the observations can reach the status of “Research Grade”, and the iNaturalist community relies on experts to achieve this.

If you know what something is, suggest an ID on an observation that "Needs ID" to help it achieve "Research Grade" status.

Forgot to upload your photos to the project page, or ran out of time? As long as the photos were taken within the project boundary April 30th through May 3rd, you can still add your observations until May 9th to be considered for the City Nature Challenge!

Don't forget to submit your bingo cards (any line completed) to be entered in to win a prize pack. No proof necessary (i.e. you don’t need to submit pictures as proof). Email your completed bingo cards to Kayla.Burak@natureconservancy.ca to be entered in to win. In addition, the top observers and top identifiers on iNaturalist will receive a copy of “Being a Bird in North America” by Robert Alvo. Winners will be announced by May 10th, 2021.
