Season Summary

The results are in. This spring season has been highly successful in the Mojave Desert!
Data has been gathered on the populations of over 180 new and historic rare plant occurences.
Over 30 separate rare plant species have been documented.
Over 395 volunteer hours have been logged.
All this information will go into the Department of Fish and Game's Database of Rare California Flora and Fauna (the California Natural Diversity Data Base) and be distributed to agencies that can hopefully conserve these populations and their habitats.
But don't worry if you haven't been involved yet, this project is ongoing into the fall and hopefully next year!
In the Western mojave-it may not look like this for long though,
this area is slated to be a wind farm
