The 2014 BioBlitz and WNPS Annual Meeting is this weekend at Red Canyon Ranch, south of Lander, Wyoming. For the event, we created two resources for the plant-savvy and -newbies alike, both listed below.
Red Canyon Rare Plant Round Up – a list of the five endemic plants to Red Canyon
Red Canyon Flora – a list of all plants to be expected or found in Red Canyon

Below is the link to the 2014 Wyoming Vascular and Nonvascular Plant Identification References document, collated and provided by Bonnie Heidel. Included are plant ID references, including every popular and technical book that has ever been reviewed in the newsletter (and some that haven’t), all current floras of adjoining states (since Wyoming’s doesn’t have habitat description or graphics), and a phone app for the first time.
Download the reference guide here.

Our mailing address is changing from P.O. Box 2500 to P.O. Box 2449. We have used box 2500 for a long time but when the post office remodeled some years ago, 2500 became a larger box that costs more. The Post Office let us continue using 2500 but actually put our mail into box 2449, a smaller one. Recently we received a note in our box saying we can no longer continue to do this so we have opted to use the less expensive box that has been meeting our needs for years.
