City Nature Challenge
April 28 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Join us for the 2024 The City Nature Challenge (CNC) and be a participant in an international bio-blitz! Help us document the incredible biodiversity in the Greater Kansas City Area by making observations of WILD organisms in the Greater Kansas City Metro Area, April 26-April 29. We are excited to safely celebrate nature in and around urban areas by documenting all the species we can find during this City Nature Challenge.
Lakeside Nature Center is participating with CNC by hosting an event on Sunday, April 28th from 10:00-12:00. Join a Naturalist from 10:00-10:30 at our picnic pavilion to learn how to iNaturalist platform, and become a citizen scientist! At 10:30 join us for a guided hike of portions of our Fox Hollow Trail and surrounding habitats to find amazing things in nature, and be a part of this city wide challenge.
Lakeside has also created a scavenger hunt of things you might find and hear on the trails, along with a photo guide of common spring plants on Fox Hollow trail. You can pick up a printed copy of the scavenger hunt at the Nature Center or download from our website: www.lakesidenaturecenter.org
