City Nature Challenge 2023- Fri 28th April- Mon 1st May

The City Nature Challenge 2023, an international bioblitz where cities and regions pit it out against one another in a friendly competition to see who can record as many species as possible, is next weekend- Fri 28th April- Monday 1st May.

Just download the i Naturalist app or go to the website and join the Brighton and Eastern Downs project to add your records and follow how the region is faring. Can we lead the UK for the highest number of different species recorded over the weekend for the third year running? I hope so!

Anyone can get involved and you can record anything you see from an Aardvark to a Zorilla. All taxa too from plants to fungi to lichen to animals.

Here are a couple of sites which are holding public bioblitzes you might like to join. Click on the links for details:

Saturday 29th April from 10am – 2pm at Benfield Hill Local Nature Reserve
Monday 1st May from 10am-3pm at Wilding Waterhall

Happy recording!
