Happy Earth Day, Regent's Park! In honor of Earth Day and the upcoming Arbor Day, the city of Fairfax is participating in the City Nature Challenge along with over 60 cities in 14 countries worldwide. This challenge aims to explore urban nature and document biodiversity in cities around the world, and there are many ways that you can take part and represent Fairfax.
From April 27 to April 30, you can take part by gathering important data for scientists, land managers, non-profits, and governments about the areas that they help to protect. To do that, download the iNaturalist app and sign up for the City Nature Challenge Washington, DC. There will be many City Nature Challenge events, but you can also snap photos and gather info on your own in a local park or your own backyard!
