Welcome!

Welcome to everyone who has participated in Natural North Carolina so far! We really appreciate your efforts to help us document every species of plant, animal, and fungus in the state. We are nearing 650 sightings - and we hope to top 1000 soon! Invite a friend to participate, or just get out there and take some photos - YOU will help us make something great!

Keep up the good work everyone!

Chris
