What IS this plant?

Bioreserve Assessors!  And other plant enthusiasts!

Here’s a new tool for you when you are out on an assessment for HRWC’s Bioreserve Project and find a plant you just can’t identify.  HRWC’s Flickr photo stream includes sets of photos of all the plants assessors have identified on all past assessments.  Chances are, someone else in the Huron watershed has also seen your mystery plant.

You can browse through the stream until you see your plant, or, you can look at the all plants we have found in wetlands, in forests, or in grasslands. You can even search all the plants with “alternate” leaves, or white flowers, or all the “invasive” plants.

Give it a try.  You can also leave comments for photos.

This is a new tool, and we are new to Flickr, so if you find any errors or improvements needed, or, if you’d like to add a plant, let us know by commenting below or emailing Kris.

Thanks to Emily Provonsha, who spent the summer gathering photos for these plants and creating this Flickr stream!
