In Saskatoon and area we are taking part in #CNC2024! Join us between April 26 to April 29, 2024 as we take part in this International initiative to collect information about the wildlife flourishing in Saskatoon and area.


Researchers, school groups, citizens and wildlife enthusiasts across the world will be taking part in this race against the clock to put nature on the map, submitting photos and observations of wildlife in their neighbourhoods and greenspaces through the free, easy to use iNaturalist smart phone app.


By observing local nature, everyone can support vital conservation research while connecting with nature and enjoying the outdoors.


Whether you are an expert, a seasoned #BioBlitz participant or getting involved for the first time, it couldn’t be easier to join in.


Simply download the iNaturalist app, take a photograph of nature in your local area - whether that’s a tree, plant or insect or animal - and upload. You don’t even have to know anything about the species you are observing. Teams of experts will be reviewing and updating the information that’s submitted, so you can log back in later and learn more about what you’ve spotted. Find out more here: CNC YXE DNU


Saskatoon and area will compete for the title of the most Biodiverse City. We need your help. The goals are to engage the public in the collection of biodiversity data, with three awards each year for the cities and areas that 1/ makes the most observations, 2/ find the most species, and 3/ engage the most people. We’re so excited to have this fun friendly competition with a chance to place Saskatoon and Area on the World Stage for the City Nature Challenge 2024!
