Seek: Phenology Challenge

This Nature Challenge was created by Seek (by iNaturalist):

Your mission:

Phenology is the study of seasonal patterns like flowering, fruiting, and migration. Some species can be found all year, while others are active in only one month.

Your challenge: Find 10 new species!

What is Seek? And how do you get started?

Seek (by iNaturalist) is a kid-safe app that helps you explore nature and get to know your local species!

Seek identifies and names plants, animals, and fungi by using the camera on a phone or tablet device. Seek also provides facts about the species you observe to deepen your understanding.

You can use Seek anywhere! Try your backyard, local park, or a nature reserve. Exciting new challenges are released monthly.

To try Seek, ask your parent or educator to visit the iNaturalist website. Or, they can click here for more information.
