Explore the great outdoors!
On April 27th-30th, Omaha will be participating in the City Nature Challenge with the Omaha STEM Ecosystem an international bio-blitz. This is the first time that a city in Nebraska is participating in the challenge.
City Nature Challenge is a worldwide conservation event, where youth and adults are encouraged to go out in their cities and backyards to find, identify, and count wildlife using the iNaturalist app. If that is not exciting enough, we will be competing with the city of Tulsa, Oklahoma to see who can get the most participants, species, and observations during the event!
We will be hosting a hands-on activity in conjunction with the Nebraska Science Festival on April 28 from 11 AM – 1 PM, and offer assistance with the iNaturalist app. Please enter through the KANEKO-UNO Library entrance on 12th St. (West side of the building)
