City Nature Challenge 2024: Spandauer Forst

Spandauer Forst

Since 2016, the so-called City Nature Challenge (CNC) has been taking place worldwide. In this friendly competition, cities compete against each other to record as many plant and animal species as possible in urban spaces in the spirit of Citizen Science.

Our Citizen Science Team at the Museum für Naturkunde will organise a guided tour through the Spandauer Forst. Together with the participants, we will report as many discoveries as possible in the iNaturalist app. In addition, an online meeting is planned for the following week in which we will try to identify all undetermined discoveries together. A mobile device to upload the observation is urgently needed to participate in the event. We already ask to download the iNaturalist app in advance.

Please note: This event is NOT a classic nature tour. It is really about observing and reporting different animals, plants and fungi. The organisers will not primarily lecture on nature, but will of course explain and assist with identifying and uploading sightings.
