Join Us for the Sixth Annual City Nature Challenge!

Get Outside!

As community science initiatives continue to grow in popularity, this year’s sixth annual City Nature Challenge is expanding to more than 400 cities across six continents. The global event calls on current and aspiring community scientists, nature and science fans, and people of all ages and education backgrounds to observe and submit pictures of wild plants, animals, and fungi within the boundaries of the Town of Blacksburg using the free mobile app iNaturalist. From Friday, April 30 to Monday, May 3, participants can upload their observations to the app and they will automatically be included in the project.
