The Nature Conservancy in Virginia is dedicated to the conservation of lands and waters on which all life depends. One of the ways we can achieve this goal is to get people engaged with nature, which is why The Nature Conservancy is hosting the City Nature Challenge in the Charlottesville area April 30- May 3, 2021.

The City Nature Challenge is a citizen-science bioblitz that takes place in cities throughout the world. Participants use the iNaturalist app and website (both free) to keep track of the plants and animals they see throughout the city. The data is made available for cities to use to inform decisions and aid with sustainable planning.
