Welcome to Botany Season!

Calling all ecoEXPLORERS: March through May is Botany Season for ecoEXPLORE. Participants earn one bonus point for every plant photo observation they submit to ecoexplore.net. The best photos of plants or other organisms will be added to this iNaturalist project. Help us expand our understanding of biodiversity in North Carolina and beyond!

New to ecoEXPLORE? Residents of North Carolina can register for free at www.ecoexplore.net. Be sure to check out guided programs near you at one of our regional hubs, North Carolina State Parks, or at our many ecoEXPLORE HotSpots. We are on track to engage students in all 100 North Carolina counties by 2023!

ecoEXPLORE is an initiative of The North Carolina Arboretum, an affiliate of the University of North Carolina System. In addition to serving as the lead organization of ecoEXPLORE, The North Carolina Arboretum is the Mountain Regional Hub for ecoEXPLORE. The Greensboro Science Center serves as the Northern Piedmont Regional Hub, and the Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education is the Northern Coastal Regional Hub. We are excited to bring the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences at Prairie Ridge on board as our Central Hub in spring 2020.
