Help document the life within some of Austin's Grow Zones (natural areas along creeks) between April 27-30, during the City Nature Challenge! Use the free iNaturalist app to take photos of plants, animals, and fungi in the Grow Zone -- the online iNaturalist community can help identify the species! We'll email registrants detailed site maps of the Grow Zone locations. Bring your smart phone and a water bottle, and please wear long pants & closed-toe shoes.
