You're invited to join the 2023 City Nature Challenge for Susquehanna County

Hello!
We're sending you this message because you have made observations on INaturalist in Susquehanna County, PA in the past. We'd like to invite you to join us as part of the 2023 City Nature Challenge which starts on Friday April 28 and runs through Monday May 1.

https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/city-nature-challenge-2023-susquehanna-county-pa

Started in 2016 with just 2 cities, the City Nature Challenge has grown into an annual international four-day bioblitz event and is run by the Community Science teams at the California Academy of Sciences and the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. Cities participate in a collaboration-meets-friendly-competition to see not only what can be accomplished when we all work toward a common goal, but also which city can gather the most observations of nature, find the most species, and engage the most people in the event. This will be the first year that Susquehanna County is participating and we're hoping that you can help us by making observations!

If you find yourself in Susquehanna County over these four days, we encourage you to make observations! Our neighboring counties are also participating, so if you have to travel over those days you can still participate and contribute to the overall project.

We are also hoping to hold a few public events (blacklighting for moths, nature walks, etc) and will post info as it becomes available. If you are interested in hosting an event please let us know!

Finally, if you are an identifier on iNat we could really use your help IDing observations. All IDing needs to be done by May 7th.

Thanks,
Cathy and Don

Cathy,

I regret to say that my observations made in PA were only made during a transit through the State. I do not live there and thus will unfortunately not be in a position to help with your challenge. Nonetheless, good luck.

@raysnook -- thanks for your reply. I hope you had a great visit through Pennsylvania. I would encourage you to join the City Nature Challenge in your area. I know that there are a number of projects in the Ontario area that would love to have your help! All the best, Cathy

Thanks for the invite. Though I was born there, and have family there, I doubt I'll be in the area during the challenge. I'll be down in DC making my observations!

@angcargil -- thanks for letting us know and good luck with the Challenge in DC. If you know anyone who will be in the area, we'd love it if you'd encourage them to join in the fun! -- Cathy

Thanks for the invite! I'm not local to your area, like others I was passing through. I'll have to find my local city nature challenge. :)
