Join other Austin volunteers during the City Nature Challenge ! We will be hosting several "Bioblitz" events during this international challenge to boost participation in the Austin area. Sign up and help make observations using the iNaturalist app . With the iNaturalist app, you simply need to take and upload a picture of a plant, animal, or fungus, and the online iNaturalist community can help identify the species. Local naturalists and one of our biologists will be on-site to help! For the event, you will need your smartphone, water, long pants & closed-toe shoes (rubber boots, if you have them). Events will be cancelled if there is heavy rain.
