Field Institute

The McDowell Sonoran Conservancy now has a Field Institute and today was the first day for many members, including me, to collect flora specimens. The goal of the Institute is to document the flora in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve during the next 3 years. Besides being fun, this Flora Survey will be a great opportunity to gain some botanical knowledge. Front and center (holding White RatanBursage) is our fearless leader; botanist Steve Jones.

    That one’s white bursage rather than white ratany, but we’ll get the ratany as soon as it shows some flowers and fruit!

    Thinking bursage and type ratany! Can’t believe I did that 🙂

  3. If there’s ever an effort to work on the herpetofauna of the area, please count me in.
