This year’s City Nature Challenge is April 30th – May 4th.

You can participate anywhere in nature any time throughout those dates, but we especially invite you to make your observations at Awbury Arboretum on Saturday, May 1st, 10:30 AM – 1:30 PM!

Bring your family to Awbury Arboretum on Saturday, May 1st between 10:30 and 1:30 and spend a few hours observing nature and participating in the City Nature Challenge.  Awbury staff will be on hand to answer questions and show you how to use the iNaturalist app if you are new to it.  (Note: We recommend downloading the iNaturalist app in advance.)  You do not need to be a nature expert; all you need to do is take pictures. There will be small prizes for participation.

Cost: FREE – no registration required

Location:  Park on Ardleigh St (6060 Ardleigh St, Phila, PA) and meet at the AdventureWoods gate.   (Note: parking for this event is not available at the Cope House.  Please do not park at 1 Awbury Rd.)

Feel free to bring a picnic and enjoy AdventureWoods while you are at Awbury.

The City Nature Challenge is a global event  that calls on citizen scientists of all ages and education backgrounds to observe and submit pictures of wild plants, animals, and fungi using the free mobile app iNaturalist.  It is a great opportunity to explore and appreciate all of the nature and wildlife in Philly.
