City Nature Challenge is back in Pittsburgh for 2019! Carnegie Museum of Natural History and Allegheny Land Trust are coordinating our region’s participation in an international biodiversity challenge using the iNaturalist app. Kicking off April 26, the challenge runs to the end of the day April 29.
