City Nature Challenge: Palouse Region
The City Nature Challenge (CNC) is a bio-blitz competition that brings together cities from all over the world to observe wildlife and log those observations on the iNaturalist app. Observations of wild flora and fauna help scientists understand species distributions and further local and global biodiversity goals.
The dates for the 2023 competition are April 28 – May 1, 2023. Any observations recorded through iNaturalist in Whitman or Latah Counties during this time will count toward the Palouse Region CNC.
You do not need to be an expert to participate in the CNC! All you need is an interest in local wildlife, access to wild (not captive or cultivated) organisms, and an iNaturalist account.
