**Would you like to help with the 2016 May Plant Count? Kim MacKenzie will be co-ordinating Nature Alberta’s annual May Plant Count which provides valuable information on the distribution and phenology of flowering plants in Alberta and takes place annually on the last week of May.
This year’s dates are May 25-31, 2016.
Volunteers collect a list of plants in their favourite natural area and record phenology (life stage) information for the flowering species.
Expertise in wilflower identification is valuable, but not mandatory.
New volunteers and returning counters, please email Kim at  kim.mack@goldpaw.ca  for more information.
