Participation is easy, free, and open to anyone in the Greater Rochester and Finger Lakes region. Help us see all the different living things in our community and get excited about being citizen scientists.

  3. Take a photo of whatever you find (and remember where you found it!).
  4. Upload your picture to the iNaturalist app and choose the project: WXXI Nature Challenge.

Get outside, explore, and participate as many times as you'd like throughout the month of April (4/1-4/30/19).
