Re:          2022 City Nature Challenge Participation

Here’s a great opportunity to get citizens and volunteers connected to nature while taking part in an international event designed to track biodiversity.  The City Nature Challenge (CNC) is an annual event run by the Community Science teams at the California Academy of Sciences and the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County.  Since launching in 2016, the CNC has grown into an international event that inspires people around to world to find and document wildlife (flora and fauna) in their cities. Last year over 419 cities in 44 countries participated, including 26 Canadian cities from coast to coast.  It’s a friendly challenge to see which city can gather the most observations of nature, find the most species, and engage the most people. Last year participants tracked over 1 million observations!

The Saskatoon and Area CNC is a fun, simple, and family-friendly event that’s easy to execute and can easily fit within public health guidelines. Using the free downloadable app found at, people can search for and document their local biodiversity simply by taking pictures and uploading them through the app or online. It’s a wonderful way to get local area residents involved in a “citizen science” event that contributes to an international database of biodiversity. 

The CNC 2022 event takes place April 29 – May 2, and we would welcome official involvement from You! Anyone can participate in the CNC, and inspiring people to explore local green spaces and natural habitats has added benefits, including developing a record of local wildlife or finding invasive species.

By collaborating with Friends of the Saskatoon Afforestation Areas Inc, your involvement would help increase citizen participation as we compete against other Canadian cities. It will also showcase the your commitment to biodiversity and conservation. Depending on your desired level of involvement you could help promote the event through its communication channels, encourage staff, volunteers, green groups and other businesses and individuals to get involved,  challenge other cities in the area or host other activities as you see fit.  We would love to add the your group or business  logo to the challenge logo, if you would like to collaborate or help-organize.

We welcome the opportunity to discuss a collaboration with you to  participate in the CNC 2022 event.  Please contact me at your convenience. Thanks for considering this request to have you, your group, or your business involved. To learn more on what the CNC is all about, visit

Thank you, the Friends of the Saskatoon Afforestation Areas Inc.

The City Nature Challenge Canada initiative is led by the Canadian Wildlife Federation
