City Nature Challenge

City Nature Challenge

MRWA is joining the iNaturalist City Nature Challenge 2019. We’ll be hiking and recording species sightings along the McIntosh Run Trails. Meeting at the trailhead at the end of Alabaster Way we’ll hike along Osprey and Attic trails to see what we find. The hike will last around two hours participants can leave early if they wish (or stay longer).

The trail head is found here: https://www.google.ca/maps/place/McIntosh+Run+Singletrack+Biking+and+Hiking+trails/@44.6028941,-63.602149,16z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x4b5a19a7851d107b:0xf54ffd47627a2302!8m2!3d44.6018857!4d-63.5957927?hl=en

The City Nature Challenge is an international competition to see which city is the most biodiverse. Halifax is competing with other cities around the world to record the most species on iNaturalist, a species record keeping website and app and to have the most people involved. Information collected on the hike will also contribute to the McIntosh Run Biodiversity Project. http://mcintoshrun.ca/biodiversity-project/

To participate create an account with the iNaturalist app or website (www.inaturalist.ca) and bring your phone or camera to the hike to record species. We will have some field guides with us to help out.

Information collected will also contribute to the McIntosh Run Biodiversity Project. http://mcintoshrun.ca/biodiversity-project/
