Lily Spring Area Survey

Grand Prize Winner in Rare Plant Treasure Hunt

In both 2010 and 2011 the CNPS Rare Plant Treasure Hunt Grand Chapter Prize was awarded to our chapter, primarily for its work with the Lily Spring Area Survey. This means we had the most volunteer hours and the largest number of updated occurrences of rare plants on a chapter basis. The award consisted of a $100 gift certificate or credit towards field equipment or other relevant need. In 2010 we used the $100 to purchase a plant press for use in our field work. In 2011 we used the $100 to purchase a copy of the new Jepson Manual.

In addition, two participants in the Lily Spring Area Survey, Jane Tirrell and Walter FIdler, received prizes for the most volunteer hours contributed by an individual during 2011. Also, a member of our chapter, Don Davis, took the Grand Prize for team or individual, plus a third place in the photo contest. Congratulations to you all!

Thanks to Jane Tirrell, Walt Fidler, Jane Strong, Tom Chester, and Graham Bothwell for their efforts during 2010 and 2011. Click here to see the 2010 Treasure Hunt blog article written by Jane Strong.
