The Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site and the Saugus River Watershed Council invite area residents to attend a City Nature Challenge event tomorrow (Saturday, April 29), from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Saugus Iron Works. Park staff and volunteers will have a resource table to help participants explore the park. Activities will be offered that are suitable for all, including guided walks, identifying fish and aquatic insects and an introduction to the iNaturalist app.
The City Nature Challenge is an international effort to document all forms of life (animals, plants, fungi and more) in parks, towns, cities and backyards that occurs between April 28 and May 1, 2023. During the City Nature Challenge, you can document all the species you see. It is as simple as exploring, photographing living things and sharing the photographs to the iNaturalist app (free and available for both Android and iPhone).
This is a free, drop-in event. No registration is required.
