We have entered the "Identification" phase!

First off, AMAZING job on the City Nature Challenge this year!

Also, congratulations to user indiana-ang for being our top observer at midnight last night!

In the last four days over 250 citizen scientists have made over 4k observations! You did that and you are awesome!

Given the wild times we are in, we truly hope this was an opportunity to unplug and reconnect to nature and rediscover wonder in a safe and responsible way.

Whether you made 1 or 100 observations, we're all part of this collective effort to help bring awareness to urban biodiversity and grow our naturalist community who cares about nature everywhere. Thank you for being a part of this amazing community.

We wanted to remind all of you that we're now in the "uploading and identifying" phase of the City Nature Challenge. We can continue to upload observations, as long as they were made in the April 30 to May 3 window. We also have these few days to give you time to look at observations and work on confirming or refining the identifications. If you haven't used it yet, definitely click the "Observations" tab near the top of our city's CNC project on iNaturalist and then click the "identify" button to see all the observations that still need IDs to help them get to research grade.

Whatever our numbers are at 9am on Sunday will be our "final" numbers for the results of the City Nature Challenge! We'll announce the "big" results: observations, species, and people, on Sunday. And we'll send out more detailed and nuanced results that dive a bit deeper into the data by Monday and will highlight the most "wow" findings!

As you're going through observations, if you see any interesting ones - rare/endangered species, great photos, observations with great stories, etc., please make a new thread in the facebook event (link below) and share them! The media loves hearing about particular observations that are unique or important or interesting, and we'd love to have many to share from all over the city!


Thanks to all of you again - we are so appreciative of everything you've done in support of the City Nature Challenge, and we couldn't have worked with a better group of people - you all are awesome!

The #CNCIndy Team
