Jon Rigden and Mike O'Brien of Friends of the Blufflands recently joined the board of the local chapter of The Prairie Enthusiasts, the Coulee Region Chapter. We have started a Plant ID Challenge on the Chapter Facebook Page by taking photos of plants just emerging on the prairies and posting them for identification. Some are difficult, but it's fun! We have flagged the plants and plan to continue taking photos of selected ones as they grow so the progression through the year can be observed. It should get easier to identify them as they grow and flower. If interested, go to The Prairie Enthusiasts - Coulee Region Chapter | Facebook. Good luck!
Flagging plants on April 9th
