Get Ready to Take the City Nature Challenge 2021


The San Diego Public Library (SDPL) is once again partnering with the San Diego Natural History Museum (the NAT) to help promote the 2021 City Nature Challenge to be held this year from Friday, April 30 through Monday, May 3.

Did you know that San Diego is one of the most bio-diverse regions in the contiguous United States? That means there is plenty of plants and wildlife to be found! This challenge is a great opportunity to get outdoors and learn more about our local environment.

The City Nature Challenge is a worldwide collaboration to document as many species of plants, insects, and animals as we can find in a four-day period from Friday, April 30 to Monday, May 3, 2021.

How to participate:

  • STEP 1: Find wildlife anywhere in San Diego County.
  • STEP 2: Take photos of wild plants & animals.
  • STEP 3: Download the free iNaturalist app from the App Store or Google Play and share your observations in the iNaturalist app.
  • STEP 4: Help identify what everyone found from May 4 – May 9.
