2021 Goals

Thank you to everyone who has recorded Oregon's wild native rhododendrons. Despite COVID-19 keeping me close to home in 2020 I was still fortunate enough to be able to wander around northern Oregon and southern Washington Cascade Mountains in search of native rhododendrons. During my day trips from Portland I also recorded a variety of other plants, and insects.

Several of the areas I visited in 2020 were impacted by the Lionshead Fire. It is currently unknown whether or not any of the areas impacted by last year's fires will be accessible in 2021. But, it will be interesting to see what impact the fires had.

In 2021 I would like to continue exploring the northern Oregon Cascades and contribute further to mapping out the range of R albiflorum, R menziesii and of course R macrophyllum.
