The species identification period has begun

We're on to phase two of the City Nature Challenge: the species identification period.

From now until 9:00am MST on May 6th, we need your help identifying the variety of plant and wildlife species in each observation. If you feel comfortable adding IDs, it's an easy process!

- On the main project page, click the green "View All" button to view all observations, or go here:
- Once that section loads, click the "Identify" button
- From there you can browse all observations and either confirm the IDs are correct, or suggest a new one.
- If you only feel comfortable IDing certain types of species, for example birds, click the "Filters" button to add in filters so you only view certain types of observations.

Have fun with it! Consider hosting or organizing a Species ID Party with friends, family, or colleagues. These can be great ways for individuals to learn from one another, and spend time together. Having food and beverages available is always a bonus, too!

And remember that during this same timeframe, you can continue to upload your observations from the April 26-29 bioblitz. Just have everything in before the 9:00am MST deadline on May 6th!

Let us know if you have any questions, we're here to help!

As of this morning, when I add observations completed by the 29th, they are not showing in the city challenge when I look at the individual observations. Nor will it allow me to manually add them to the city challenge. Is there an issue? These were all completed during the bioblitz, but still adding them.

Got most of the "unknown" observations into some category!
