Calflora Webinar 5/5/22

From San Luis Obispo CNPS Chapter

Cynthia Powell, Executive Director, Calflora 
Date: Thursday, May 5, 2022, 7pm via Zoom


Please join us to learn from Calflora’s Executive Director Cynthia Powell about new Calflora tools for native plant professionals, gardeners, and enthusiasts! Calflora aggregates millions of plant observations across the state from dozens of sources and serves them to the public free of charge. These data sources include CCH2 (a worldwide plant information portal from the California Consortium of Herbaria), iNaturalist, and CNPS plant checklists from around the state. How can you better use this incredible resource to learn more about regional plants?

At this presentation, Cynthia will cover Calflora’s planning your garden tool, specimen and other plant observations used in this tool, detailed plant ranges now available on Calflora’s species pages (for example, Grindelia stricta), population monitoring tools, and email alerts. She will also go over the important role CNPS members play in submitting and commenting on Calflora observations and checklists. Also, Bryophytes are now in Calflora, and Calflora needs help from Bryophyte lovers to improve distribution information.
