CA Native Plant Week: Celeb-native

Saturday, April 17th is the start of CA Native Plant Week (April 17-24) and CNPS will be celebrating with events across the State throughout this week with the CARE initiative!

To celebrate, we will be holding two challenges this upcoming week!

1) Native Plant Challenge
Starting now until the end of CA Native Plant Week (April 24), observe as many Native Plants as possible! We will be selecting TWO members with the most CA Native Plant observations and rewarding them with CNPS Fire Follower Pins! Upload observations and identify by April 30 and be a member of the project to win!

2) “Fave” Observation Challenge
Do you have a favorite observation? Tell us about it! Is there a story behind the picture?

This week, we want to share observations with the Fire Followers community. Share your favorite observation with us by linking it in the comments! In your comment, include what burned site you found it in and your experience leading up to snapping a picture! What else did you find? What were the trail conditions? Share your story through your observations!

Feel free to share your observations with more people by linking it to your social media and/or sending it to friends and family to rack up more ‘Faves’. Additionally, explore other observations and if you like the image, Fave it!

Starting now (April 13) through April 24, the member with the most comments and Faves will also receive a Fire Followers Pin!

In Addition, we would love to share your picture and story on our social media pages if you would like.

I would like to ask help from project members in IDing the plants being observed at Sugarloaf Ridge State Park, in the Glass Fire Burn Zone.
We currently have 4096 plant observations in the park needing IDs, and get several hundred more each week. Anyone who has time to do some IDing, it would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks!
