Join us for a day of discovery at Lands End, as we search for wildlife together! The Lands End Nature Challenge is part of The City Nature Challenge, which is an international effort to connect people with the natural world. This year, there are over 60 competing cities on five continents; so the competition is fierce!

Throughout the afternoon, we will talk about all the exciting things we see and hear, as well as share our insight and excitement for nature. Together, we will take pictures and document all wildlife we find, from plants and flowers, to birds, bugs and fungi! We’ll post our photos to an application called iNaturalist, where plants and animals can be identified by other nature enthusiasts. 

All ages welcome, no experience necessary!

Come be a part of a diverse community of nature-loving people, as we rediscover our parks together.
