The California Native Plant Society recently completed the 2012 CNPS Rare Plant Treasure Hunt. The survey focused on deserts and U.S. Forest Service. California deserts have not been very thoroughly surveyed by botanists and renewable energy projects continue to threaten the desert flora. The U.S. Forest lands in the southern and eastern Sierra are also in need of more botanical surveys. The surveys found new populations of rare plants in both the desert and Sierra. To see the results of the survey go to California Rare Plant Treasure Hunt Results.
