ALBERTA May Plant Count:       Date: May 25-31, 2019
The May Plant Count (MPC) is an annual event where volunteers survey their favorite natural area to provide valuable information on the distribution and phenology of flowering plants in Alberta during the last week of May (May 25-31). MPC is a Nature Alberta citizen science initiative supported by the Alberta Native Plant Council. It’s a great opportunity to shake the rust off of our plant identification skills accumulated over the winter and conduct a fun “trek and check” through our favorite natural space.
Returning and new volunteers are welcome to participate and provide their plant lists. However, behind the scenes volunteers are required to continue this event. The MPC would function optimally with a committee of volunteers so the tasks of coordinating volunteers, preparing and distributing promotions and marketing material, compiling all data, and creating an annual presentation of the compiled results can be completed. Nature Alberta and the Alberta Native Plant Council do not exist without volunteers so I humbly ask that you think about volunteering your time beyond the data collection component for these great organizations on the MPC Committee.
Please contact Kim MacKenzie at kim.mack@goldpaw.ca to volunteer!

Join our Stewards, Derek Johnson and Joelyn Kozar, of Clyde Fen Candidate Natural Area for the May Species Count! Located minutes outside of Clyde, AB; Clyde Fen is one of four natural areas stewarded by the ANPC. The day will entail a meander through an aspen stand, a shrubby fen, and a pine stand. We will be looking to count the number of plant species in flower. Last years count found 56 species in flower! Bring rubber boots, pack a lunch, and be prepared to spend a better part of the day there.
