City Nature Challenge 2019: Calling All Nature Lovers! with PA Master Naturalist Kris Soffa – MORNING SESSION

April 29, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Meet at Houston Playground

This year, Philadelphia will be taking part in the City Nature Challenge, competing against cities worldwide to observe the greatest number of species of flora and fauna…and you can participate! Help us to collect data on the many plants and animals living in Houston Meadow, such as butterflies, snakes, frogs, dragonflies, foxes, moths, bats, and much more! Be sure to download the iNaturalist app on your smartphone prior to these events as that’s what we’ll be using to capture data about these unique grasslands. Learn more at

Registration is recommended for all hikes (required if indicated) so that participants can be informed of weather or other emergency cancellations. Unless otherwise specified, Trail Ambassador Walks may be on rocky, rugged trails that may be wet and slippery. Wear sturdy shoes or boots with socks. Long pants are recommended for protection against occasional poison ivy and possible ticks. Bring water and a snack if desired. Unless otherwise noted, children over six are welcome if accompanied by a responsible adult.
