The Colorado Alpine EcoFlora Project is taking off! In July, our Conservation Team led a hike with Friends of the Dillon Ranger District to offer some hands-on learning about the Colorado Alpine EcoFlora Project. (Pictured below). This is our community-science effort to document alpine plant diversity and phenology across our state, powered by iNaturalist, the free, easy-to-use nature observation app. Anyone can join and start contributing meaningful scientific data that helps us understand the patterns of alpine plants! We are also working with our friends at Walking Mountains Science Center, who are leading backcountry hikes to introduce folks to our alpine plants and learn more about using the Colorado Alpine EcoFlora Project . These are a great way to get more hands-on experience. Learn more about the Walking Mountains Science Center and their Citizen Science projects.
