The Global CNC event scheduled for April 30-May 3 (observations) and May 3-9 (identifications). Calvert County is part of the City Nature Challenge of the Washington DC region.
During the four-day challenge, individuals and groups will be on the hunt for animals, plants, mushrooms, and other life forms. These observations will be documented on iNaturalist and counted towards our region's tally. As a participant, it is up to you how much or how little you take part! Do only what feels safe for you & your family and is in accordance with all your local regulations.
