City Nature Challenge 2020

Cubs and scouts took part in the worldwide City Nature Challenge this year using the iNaturalist app to observe and identify plants, birds, animals and insects between 24-27th April. This year was a challenge with a difference – lockdown meant there were no trips up Table Mountain, and everything had to be done from home. At 1st Claremont, 40 cubs, scouts and scouters took part, and entered nearly 700 observations, and scouting overall contributed nearly a quarter of Cape Town’s total of 34000 observations – the most of any city in the world!

The City Nature Challenge takes place once a year but the iNaturalist app operates year round.
