2021 City Nature Challenge RESULTS

The City Nature Challenge results are in!

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who helped organize, participated in, and identified observations from the 6th annual City Nature Challenge! Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we had over 10,000 more people participate compared to last year, and for the first time ever, we made over one million observations in the four days of the challenge!

141 people made 1880 observations of 713 species in Mendocino County! We made 31% more observation of 15% more species and 25% more people participated from 2020. Shout out to all the certified California Naturalists that showed up: you made well over 50% of our county's observations!

Here are the collective results:
Observations: 1,270,767
Species: 45,300+, including more than 2,100 rare/endangered/threatened species

Thanks everyone! Continue to help IDing those CNC observations - it takes awhile to get through them! We're looking forward to CNC 2022!
