Citizen Science: City Nature Challenge

Thursday April 22

Other dates...

4:00 PM  –  5:00 PM


Recommended for All Ages | One registration per family | Please provide the supervising adult’s information for registration.


What better time than now for a parent and child to take a solo walk in the woods or along the beach, or even to observe the birds outside their window? We’ll introduce apps like iNaturalist that can be used to record what you see and contribute to scientists’ knowledge of our local environment. Or we’ll demonstrate how to spend some time learning to identify birds and how students may use cell phones to contribute information to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s eBird project.


The Maritime Aquarium is using Zoom to deliver virtual programming right to your home! In advance of the virtual program, please visit or download the Zoom app to your mobile device. 


There is a suggested donation of $10 per program to our Annual Fund, which you can give to right before check-out! With your support The Maritime Aquarium can continue to offer vital and enriching virtual programs to families here in the U.S. and across the globe!

We look forward to virtually learning with you!
