The City Nature Challenge is a global community science event that mobilizes urban residents and visitors to observe, document, and celebrate the wild plants, animals, and fungi in and around urban areas. This focused and collective effort increases our awareness and understanding of urban biodiversity around the world.

City Nature Challenge 2022: Lexington will take place April 29th – May 2nd throughout Fayette County. Lexington residents and visitors are encouraged to photograph the wild nature around them and upload those photographs to iNaturalist.
