City Nature Challenge

This is a logo that says

In 2023, Nillumbik Shire Council will be joining Councils around greater Melbourne to participate in the City Nature Challenge.

Help us compete with cities from around the world by recording wild species between 28 April and 1 May 2023 on iNaturalist.

By uploading your records you are contributing to science as well as recording the incredible biodiversity of our area. You will also participate in some friendly competition to see not only what can be accomplished when we all work toward a common goal, but which city can gather the most observations of nature, find the most species and engage the most people in the event.

Let's get out there and have fun!
