Our goal is to explore the entire Anza-Borrego Desert, making the most detailed plant list possible.

We started mapping certain rare plants like Xylorhiza orcuttii and we are close to mapping them all, over 10,000.

Gradually we started recording more and more plant locations on our own.
We switched to iNaturalist, to make the plants available to all interested and to improve our plant ID's.

We do a lot of hikes / surveys, like 5 days a week on longer day hikes, exploring the Anza-Borrego Desert and surrounding area.

Our seasonal bloom report:

We do have a free Android and iOS flower app of the Anza Borrego Desert and surrounding areas.
