Congrats to all the organizers, observers, and 16 cities involved in the #CityNatureChallenge! Because this was a friendly competition there was a leaderboard, but it probably goes without saying that nature comes out on top when we're all engaged in discovery and stewardship.

This year on Earth Day California Naturalists are celebrating and marching for the natural sciences that help us to understand how nature works. The scientific method requires that we unlock our power of observation. Becoming a naturalist enhances our ability to study nature and together we can imagine the earth as a better place for all species. Have an amazing day filled with wonder!
