Silvia Gederberg had problem joining the CNC-houston project and received this email reply (I did the red highlighting):

Hi Silvia,
City Nature Challenge projects were converted to our new “collection” style projects (described here). One cannot join a collection project, because one cannot manually submit an observation to the project – if the observation fits the project’s parameters it is automatically shown when the project page is loaded. So it removes the extra step of adding your observation to the project. If your observation is made within the boundaries and time frame of the Houston CNC project, it will show up there automatically.
There is a “follow” option for this type of project, which notifies you if the project creates a new journal post.
It is an oversight that there is a “join” button on the app, which we will hopefully fix soon. I apologize for the confusion
Tony
