Volunteer to Collect Plant Information on Field Trips

Volunteers are needed to help create these plant lists. See our Volunteer page for more information.

We create and publish lists of plants observed at various field trip sites. You can find them atField Trip Plant ListsYou can download and print them and take them with you. The number of lists will grow steadily, so be patient if you don't see one for your site now.
