May 20, Wednesday. 7:00 p.m. Zoom Webinar "Capturing California's Flowers" Using digital images to investigate phenological change in a biodiversity hotspot.   Jenn Yost and Katie Pearson.

Botanists have been collecting plants in California since the late 1700’s. They never suspected that botanists of the future would use those collections to understand the effects of climate change on California’s plants. Today we are doing just that. The California Phenology (CAP) Network is a collaboration of 45 California herbaria that is working to digitize nearly 1 million specimens by 2022. These data are made publicly available on a newly developed data portal, The CAP Network is also recording the phenological status (e.g., flowering, fruiting) of digitized specimens, generating a massive dataset with which we can answer questions such as: 1) which species are in most danger of phenological mismatches, 2) which habitats and vegetation types are most phenologically sensitive to changes in precipitation and temperature, and 3) where might mismatches occur between plants and their pollinators, pathogens, and pests? Jenn and Katie will show you how to look at plants year round in the CCH2 and will lead an interactive workshop where you can help contribute data to California’s historical collections from the comfort of your own home.

September 9, Wednesday. 7:00 p.m. Zoom webinar.  "Mt. Rainier Wildflower Adventure." Join Donna Wildearth on a journey to see the sub-alpine wildflowers on Mt.
