Family bioblitz for City Nature Challenge

Fri 26 April, 11am - 1pm

Join the Sherbourne Valley Project team in this family bioblitz at Charterhouse! We will use the iNaturalist app to record as many wildlife species as possible to put Coventry on the map for the international City Nature Challenge.


You don’t need to have any experience to take part, although we are also hosting several training sessions in the weeks prior so you can make yourself comfortable. You don’t need to worry about knowing how to identify many species, we will have people on hand to help, and simply uploading a picture will still help us in the challenge! Downloading the iNaturalist app in advance is recommended to reduce your data usage.
