City Nature Challenge Meet Up at Crossroads Park in Bellevue


Join Bellevue Parks & Community Service and Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife for a public meet up for science at 12 p.m. on Friday, April 28, at Crossroads Park in Bellevue. We will show you how to participate in the Seattle-Tacoma City Nature Challenge and lead everyone through an observation at the park! Come learn how to observe nearby nature as part of a global event and contribute to community science! 

This meet up is free and open to all ages, no sign up required. All you need is a mobile phone or tablet with data, the iNaturalist app (also free and we can help you download and set it up) and some natural curiosity. We will show how you can help by observing nature, identifying observations, or better yet – both – looking high and low for all nature in the Seattle-Tacoma area (all of Snohomish, King and Pierce counties) and sharing your observations using iNaturalist! 

April 28, 2023: 12 to 2 p.m. Crossroads Park International Shelter (16124 NE 8th St, Bellevue, WA 98008)
