The City Nature Challenge is a global initiative to encourage people across the world to make observations and recordings of urban nature. 
We are working in partnership with the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust City Local Group, Nottingham City Council, Nottingham Open Spaces Forum, National Biodiversity Network and Notts Bat Group to coordinate Nottingham's entry again for 2022, building on the success of the 2020 and 2021 competitions. The competition will be taking place Friday 29 April - Monday 2 May. 

We will be running a Zoom Q&A for primary schools on the morning of Friday 29 April, where pupils will be able to hear from wildlife experts about the nature they might find near them. Get in touch with us if you'd like to be involved. 

Details of all free events happening in Nottingham over the weekend can be found on the poster below.
