The 2017 City Nature Challenge is coming to a close. Over the past four days, people from all over the country have been using the iNaturalist platform to make observations and identify species in various cities around the the nation. As of today, 88343 observations have been made with 7093 species IDs and 3410 participants.
In the Minneapolis/St. Paul Metro Area, over 800 observations where made. You can find more information about the iNaturalist statistics for all the participating cities here.
