CNC:NYC Starts in Just a Few Hours!

We're so excited for the City Nature Challenge to being in NYC! Here are a few more resources and reminders.

Daniel Atha (@danielatha) at NYBG and Christian Murphy (@cmurphy95) at Bronx River Alliance made a great quick overview of making lots of CNC observations. Check it out here.

We also have a longer recording of a training we gave this week about making better observations featuring Kelly O'Donnell (@klodonnell), Chris Kreussling (@xris), and Siddhartha Hayes. You can find that here.

Please remember to follow local health guidelines when you go out to observe: stay home if you feel sick, wear your masks, wash your hands, and observe social distancing. If you do not feel comfortable going out to make observations, you can still participate! Visit this Stay-at-Home Scavenger Hunt post for ideas for things you can observe without leaving your home!

If you have any questions, send an email to citynaturechallengeNYC@gmail.com or come to one of our daily meet-ups. Register for those at the links below:
Friday, April 30 - 12:30p
Saturday, May 1 - 9a
Sunday, May 2 - 10a
Monday, May 3 - 12p
