Houston is competing against Dallas/Fort Worth and Austin in the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department’s City Nature Challenge Friday, April 14 through Tuesday, April 18 to see which city can document the most animals.

Want to participate and help your city win? Grab your smart phone and head outdoors! It’s easy to participate by using the iNaturalist app. Just take a picture of a plant or animal, post it to iNaturalist and the online community will help accurately identify the species.

Visit any Precinct 4 park and find out how many species you can find. Any observation in the greater metropolitan area will count during the five-day challenge. You can also explore the life in your backyard, in your local park, or on a field trip. TPWD, the Audubon Society, and many others will be joining in this fun challenge.
