65 cities in 17 countries around the world will participate in the third annual City Nature Challenge. Seven urban areas in Texas will be participating including last year’s champion, Dallas/Fort Worth.  Many local nature-centered organizations will be hosting events that will make it fun and easy to contribute to the D/FW team. The only requirement will be that you record your observations in iNaturalist. This evening’s program will provide an overview of iNaturalist, including what it is, who uses it, how to post observations, and how it can help you learn about the natural world. We will emphasize practical, step-by-step instructions for the Smartphone App as well as the iNaturalist.org website.
