City Nature Challenge 2018

The Boston Area City Nature Challenge includes three STEAM events in Cambridge for families and kids 4 and up, all called Kids, Bugs, Art.

Kids can make a mask or puppet of a local insect or other arthropod, and the whole family can participate in a global citizen science project, uploading photos of wildlife species they find to iNaturalist on the spot, using the iPhone app.

Free, Public Events in Cambridge

All are produced and sponsored by the Cambridge Wildlife Puppetry Project in partnership with local nonprofit organizations. Want to volunteer? Please click here to sign up.
