Get outside and take photos of plants and animals as part of global competition
DENVER, Colo. - Which city in the world is most engaged in its natural environment? During four days in April, Denver and Boulder residents will be competing against over 60 cities around the world to find out.
From April 27 through 30, Denver and Boulder residents are encouraged to go outside to photograph and identify plants and animals as part of a global competition to win the City Nature Challenge!
City Nature Challenge 2018 is an international effort to find and document plants and wildlife in cities across the globe. Cities are competing against each other to see who can make the most observations of nature, who can find the most species, and who can engage the most people. The City Nature Challenge is organized by the California Academy of Sciences and the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County.
Colorado nonprofits and government agencies like Colorado Parks and Wildlife, The Nature Conservancy, the City and County of Denver, and Great Outdoors Colorado all see the value in this effort to connect people to their environment and reap the benefits of crowd-sourced citizen science.
"We have so much amazing nature in and around Denver, that we encourage people to explore their neighborhoods and nearby natural areas to discover incredible wildlife," said Chris Hawkins, urban conservation program manager for The Nature Conservancy in Colorado. "Not only will participants be having fun outside, but they will also be making valuable scientific contributions that will help The Nature Conservancy as we work to create a thriving region for people and nature."
Citizen Science and the iNaturalist app
To participate, download the free iNaturalist app, join the project, then get outside and start taking pictures of the nature around you. By participating, you will not only help Denver and Boulder win the competition, you will also be contributing crucial data about Colorado's unique biodiversity. Scientists can then use this information to make important decisions about how to protect and improve Colorado's nature.
The iNaturalist app that people use to identify species in the competition has been part of Colorado Parks and Wildlife's efforts to engage citizen scientists over the past few years.
"At its core, it's a citizen science project that is trying to engage as many people as possible to record the diversity of life wherever they happen to be," said CPW Forest Management Coordinator Matt Schulz.
In just under three years, the app has documented more than 6,000 observations of nature in Colorado's 41 state parks. The new technology is helping CPW biologists track the wildlife resources, and in some cases, even contributing toward furthering important research.
"Anyone in the metro area can make a big difference with this challenge," Schulz said, "just by observing what is outside their door, whether it's the tree that lines your street or the bird stopping over to find a bit of food. Anything alive and wild counts, so please help give Colorado a good showing. The information collected is used by land managers and scientists working on a variety of issues, from learning about the type of habitat an animal uses to what time of year certain flowers bloom. Also, iNaturalist allows other users to provide identification of each observation, so even if you don't know what something is, it can still be valuable to snap a picture and load it up."
In fact, other users jumping on the app to help identify species will be crucial to winning the contest. From May 1 - 3, users who identify photos of wildlife down to the species level will count toward the point tally!
CPW has created a set of Denver-specific plant and animal guides in the app so people engaged in the challenge can better identify what they are looking at.
All of the supporting organizations see the City Nature Challenge as a great way to both get people outdoors in friendly competition and as a way to introduce people to a new tool that is both helpful to the casual wildlife viewer and to those who help manage those wildlife resources and habitats.
"We're excited that this challenge will help Coloradans connect with nature close to home," said GOCO Executive Director Chris Castilian. "What a great opportunity for everyone living in the Denver area to engage with each other and have fun outside. Let's show other cities and states how much we care about our great outdoors here in Colorado."
Join a more intense "BioBlitz" at a State Park:
You can participate in the City Nature Challenge with others at two "BioBlitzes" in Denver-area state parks! What's a BioBlitz? According to Wikipedia, a BioBlitz is defined as "an intense period of biological surveying in an attempt to record all the living species within a designated area. Groups of scientists, naturalists and volunteers conduct an intensive field study over a continuous time period (e.g., usually 24 hours)."
Although CPW does host 24-hour BioBlitzes, the City Nature Challenge BioBlitz is a five-hour version designed to get you outside using the iNaturalist app with others. Come join us!
BioBlitz Dates and Times
â€‹Sat., April 28 from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. - Barr Lake State Park
Sat., April 28 from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. - Chatfield State Parkâ€‹â€‹
Colorado state parks are a great place to be outdoors, as well as a great place to participate in the City Nature Challenge. Check CPW's City Nature Challenge page for updated information on the City Nature Challenge project.
