Welcome to the Alaska Botany Bioblitz! The purpose of this bioblitz is to record as many observations of plants in Alaska as possible during the first 2 weeks of July, 2022. To contribute, all you have to do is join the project on iNaturalist and upload plant photos from anywhere in Alaska taken between July 1 and 15. Check out the project on iNaturalist!
Prizes will be awarded to the person with the most observations, the widest geographic extent of observations, the best photo, and the greatest number of identifications.

The Flora of CSP project is a volunteer-led project organized by the Alaska Native Plant Society (AKNPS) in cooperation with CSP staff. Its objective is to inventory the flora and fungi of the Park, including vascular plants, bryophytes, lichens, and fungi. We initiated the project in the spring of 2020 with the creation of the “Flora of Chugach State Park” iNaturalist project (www.inaturalist.org /projects/flora-of- chugach-state-park).
If you would like to contribute observations to this project . . . it’s possible you already have! The iNaturalist project is a “collection” project, which means that all observations that are recorded within the boundary of CSP and uploaded to iNaturalist are automatically included in the project. The Flora of CSP project will continue in 2022, and we need your help to make observations and provide identifications! To learn more please go to the iNaturalist link above. Please direct all questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
