South Florida City Nature Challenge


Join the City Nature Challenge!


Each year the City participates in a global bioblitz to document the nature living in our urban environments. Help this global citizen science effort and learn more about the plants and animals in your neighborhood by participating in this year's City Nature challenge. 


April 28 - May 1, 2023

How to participate:

  1. Download the iNaturalist app from Google Play or the App Store, or from
  2. Head outside and make observations between April 28 and May 1 anywhere in South Florida including Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami Dade Counties. 
  3. That's it! All observations made within the City on those dates will be automatically added to the South Florida iNaturalist project

What counts as an observation?
The City of Coconut Creek is participating in CNCsofl, a project of the City Nature Challenge, in order to get a snapshot of the biodiversity in the City as well as introduce residents and visitors to the nature and wildlife that exists all around us. 

Observations should be of wild specimens. Make observations of the birds, butterflies, insects, and mammals that come and go from your yard, or the plants and trees you see walking around your neighborhood or through the City parks and natural areas. Try to avoid observations of plants you planted in a garden or pot, pets, or animals in captivity.
