For the third year in a row, NHMLA is rallying everyone in Los Angeles County to get out outside, snap photos of local wildlife, and share their observations.

This year, 60+ cities around the world are competing in the City Nature Challenge. Using cameras and smartphones, thousands of people worldwide will observe wildlife in their home cities, contributing to an international database of urban wildlife that will be used by scientists and naturalists all over the world.
