Join the City Nature Challenge bioblitz!

Take 10 minutes out of your weekend between 26 to 30 April 2024 to go outdoors and explore and appreciate the world we live in! SCOUTS SA is once again participating in the global City Nature Challenge! Being surrounded by nature and learning fun facts about the wildlife around us, ties into our national challenge of health and well-being.
All it takes to join the global City Nature Challenge bioblitz is to download the iNaturalist App, snap photos of plants, animals, insects, fungi, etc. in your garden, local park or nature reserve, upload them on the App, and link them to the SCOUTS South Africa project. Scouting members who submit 10 or more valid observations will be able to wear a CNC2024 badge on their uniforms! Also, you can decide whether to spend 10 minutes or 2 hours exploring and taking photos. 
By participating in the CIty Nature Challenge you are also helping us put Scouting on the Map by highlighting the importance of mobilising young people to be better citizens who care about the biodiversity within their neighbourhoods.
