Get outside. What can you see? What can you hear?

People don’t often think of urban centres when they think about biodiversity. And yet, cities are where most of us interact with nature most often.

Have you ever seen a sparrow? Probably. But have you ever looked for one?

In this activity, we encourage our community to seek out the different species of plants, birds, and insects that can be found in Montreal at this time of year. Take your phone or camera out on your next walk to the corner store, grab your kids for a fun quest, or relax on a bench in the park and see what you can spot!

We will be sharing our community's photographs on Instagram and monitoring your participation! Prizes will be given out to those who find the most species, as well as for general participation through a draw!
