    The City Nature Challenge uses iNaturalist (an app for sharing field observations)) and pits cities across the country in a race to see who can get the most participation and the most posts. This year Maine is competing as a “city”! GOMMEA will lead several outings to guide people in using the app and in exploring our amazing marine environment. Boston area is also participating. Check the international city list

    This year’s event will be occurring in two phases. April 26 - 29 will be a four-day window to capture as many species and observations as possible on iNaturalist.org. Then from April 30 – May 5 will be time to work on identifying the observations made.
