We’re celebrating our Seattle-area legends! Our trees, flowers, wildlife that makes our area unique. We are also giving a cheeky nod to local landmarks, familiar haunts, and beloved personalities that come to mind when we think of Seattle.
Each month we will be hosting a community nature scavenger hunt where you'll be challenged to find our legendary flora and fauna here in King County. Each contest will point out a different category of nature to search, like birds or berries. You'll log your findings in the easy-to-use iNaturalist app. Form a small team or do it alone, but either way, it's a fun way to get outdoors and learn a little about nature in your area.
After downloading the app, search iNaturalist for the project name for that month. Currently, we are hosting the Fir Sticks-A-Lot project. You will need to join this project to submit images. After one project ends, keep an eye out on our newsletter and social media for when we announce the next project opening.
The user who submits the most different species in our project by 11:59 PM on February 28, 2021, is the winner. In the case of a tie, the winner will be selected randomly from all the users with the most different species in our project. The winner will receive a 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle.
