A Daily Lift – April 24, 2020

Good Morning,

Our “lifts” for today:

City Nature Challenge: Greater Philadelphia Area. Philadelphia is competing in the City Nature Challenge for the first time and needs your help to win! Cities around the world will be competing against each other to see who can rack up the most observations, see the most species and get the most people out recording nature. Despite being a fairly densely populated area, Philadelphia and its surrounding counties have an impressive diversity of wildlife. This annual event is organized by Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County and California Academy of Sciences.

By using the free app, iNaturalist, you can capture plants, trees, birds, insects, etc. The app will help you to specifically label what you have observed, and it will allow you to upload it so it can be used for this project. You can use it right outside in your own neighborhood!
