In the Pacific Northwest we have several dedicated animal mothers. This Mother’s Day, let’s celebrate our wild neighbors.

I’m thrilled that KCTS also picked up this article celebrating our animal mothers.
Beginning tonight, at midnight, the first Seattle City Nature Challenge begins. Launched last year as an effort between Los Angeles and San Francisco, this year it’s expanded to 16 US cities, including Seattle, which I’m organizing.
The City Nature Challenge is a nationwide urban bioblitz for anyone and everyone to participate in. Together, we can help document the urban nature of Seattle for science. Anyone can be a citizen scientist from April 14-18 and it’s very easy:
- Download the iNaturalist app (available for Android and iOS)
- Get outside and take photos of everything in nature; moss/lichen/birds/insects/plants/sea life/etc.
- Record your photos as observations in the iNaturalist app
You do not know what it is you’re taking photos of, others on iNaturalist can help identify it.
If you do not have a smart phone, no problem. You can take photos and post them on…
Beginning Saturday, April 8th, I will be showing photography from my 365 Nature Project at Machine House Brewery in the Georgetown neighborhood in Seattle. The photos will be on view for a month, until May 7th. All the photos I’ve selected are of urban nature in Seattle. Come by and see the diversity of life we have in the city.
If you’re in Seattle, or find yourself in Seattle during the month, please stop in and take a look at the photos!
