This Mini BioBloitz is part of the statewide City Nature Challenge, a global effort to document nature in urban areas and learn about the animal and plant life discovered there. In addition to the statewide challenge, North Platte, Lincoln, Norfolk, Omaha and Scottsbluff are hosting the challenge in their backyards.

The Mini Bioblitz lands on the last day of the observations period of the challenge, which runs April 29 to May 2. Identifying observations will be conducted May 3 to May 8.
