City Nature Challenge 2019

April 26 - April 29


Event Navigation

The City Nature Challenge is an international effort for people to find and document plants and wildlife in cities across the globe. For the fourth year in a row, we’re rallying everyone in Los Angeles County to get outside, snap photos of any plant, animal, fungi, slime mold, or any other evidence of life, and share observations.

Over 130 cities around the world are competing in the City Nature Challenge from April 26-29 and contributing to an international database of urban wildlife that will be used by scientists, naturalists, and educators all over the world for research and discovery. Heal the Bay is participating in the City Nature Challenge, which is organized by the Natural History Museum and the California Academy of Sciences.

Por cuarto año consecutivo, NHM convoca a todas las personas del Condado de Los Angeles a que salgan, a que tomen fotos de la vida silvestre local y que compartan sus descubrimientos.

Este año, más de 130 ciudades alrededor del mundo competirán en el Reto Naturalista Urbano del 26 al 29 de abril. Haciendo uso de cámaras y teléfonos inteligentes, miles de personas de diversas partes del mundo observarán la vida silvestre en sus ciudades, contribuyendo a una base de datos internacional de la vida silvestre urbana que será utilizada por científicos y naturalistas de todo el mundo.

Wanna roll up your sleeves and become a Heal the Bay Volunteer? We have five distinct volunteer programs that we offer. Each program has a specific training associated with it, as well as its own volunteer roles. Aquarium – Aquarium volunteers work at our Santa Monica Pier Aquarium. They support various public programs from interpreting at touch tanks to ensuring the success of private events. They also attend outreach events and represent Heal the Bay all over Los Angeles. Beach – Beach Captain volunteers support our large Nothin’ But Sand beach cleanups that occur every third Saturday of the month. They are also involved in other beach programs like Suits on the Sand, and have the opportunity to attend Coastal Cleanup Day Site Captain training. Outreach – These volunteers take Heal the Bay knowledge all over Los Angeles. Speakers Bureau volunteers present in classrooms, in business meetings, at beach cleanups, festivals and more. Community Science – MPA Watch Volunteers survey marine protected areas (MPAs) in Malibu and Palos Verdes. They monitor, collect data, and get to walk along some of California’s most stunning beaches. Youth – Middle and high school students register their school club with Club Heal the Bay to be part of a larger environmental advocacy community. In return, clubs receive recognition and rewards for their civic action projects. To get started as a Heal the Bay volunteer, attend a Volunteer Orientation.
