I wrote before about monitoring for endangered, sensitive and threatened plants. We have started to work more with the Seeds of Success program to identify potential populations for seed collection. What a great way to learn the flora of an area… to do seeds of success! We are in the field every day looking for large populations of native plants. We have a list of priority species, and when we identify populations we start by taking herbarium vouchers and assessing the seed potential seed production of the site.

We have identified 11 potential populations, and think many will be ready for collection when we get back from Chicago!
