This is the twentieth year of the Oregon Flora Project, and big things are happening! We will be publishing as a hardbound book the first volume of the Flora of Oregon at the end of 2014. It will cover the gymnosperms, ferns and fern allies, and monocots. A discussion of ecology and the history of Oregon botany will open the book, and many new illustrations will accompany the floristic treatments. This will be the first new flora of our state in 73 years!
We will also be releasing a wildflower identification app this spring. This easy-to-use identification tool will cover ~950 wildflowers across the state. Look for information about this offering on our website in the coming months.
We ushered in the year with a fundraising campaign with a $20,000 matching challenge. We are well on our way to meeting it, and I further challenge Oregon Flora Project supporters to surpass it by at least 20%. Your generous support will ensure we meet our significant goals in this twentieth year of the OFP.
