Purple wildflowers at the level of a rooftop or balcony are pollinated by a bee in the foreground. In the background lower down is a street lined with trees, homes, and parked cars.


Are you a nature lover? Do you like to notice plants, animals, birds, and insects in your surroundings? You can become a participatory scientist!

The Campus Biodiversity Network has developed over a dozen iNaturalist projects to encourage students and other community members to explore nature.

Join them other panelists, including Concordia's own Urban Agriculture and Biodiversity Coordinator, for a discussion of what citizens can accomplish during a City Nature Challenge bioblitz!
