Join us for our August Program Meeting over Zoom teleconference! We’ll hear the latest Chapter announcements, then enjoy a talk by Chapter member Bruce Homer-Smith.
PlantID.net is a website for people who see a plant in the wild and wonder about it. You enter what you know about your plant (where you are, plant type, color, leaf arrangement, deciduous, has berries, etc.) to get a short illustrated list of possibilities. Then you dive down into photos and captions to learn about your plant.
Bruce is a retired database developer. He loves to learn about plants in the wild because it helps him notice more when he’s out. Since 2012 he’s spent about half of his time programming and adding content to PlantID.net – a labor of love. He works with a large community of plant enthusiasts, adding ID tips and stories to make PlantID.net an extraordinary place to learn about California plants.
Turn to page 9 to get to know summer lupine, a plant described in PlantID.net, that Bruce has highlighted especially for us.
