Calflora Tools for CNPS Users – Cynthia Powell

General Meeting, Monday May 4th, 2020 7:30pm using UberConference


Calflora Tools for CNPS Users


Cynthia Powell, Calflora Executive Director wears many hats


Home learning tools are more important today than ever before. Using Calflora, you can appreciate California flora by learning local species, submitting checklists, using the Planting Guide describing which California native plants will likely grow well at a particular location, and viewing Great Places.

As a digital library, Calflora provides information about California plant distribution and biodiversity for use in education, research, and conservation. Through Calflora, scientists, citizens, and policymakers have quick and easy access to data they need for analyzing species distributions, modeling spread of invasive species, or identifying consequences of habitat loss. Furthermore, Calflora provides a mechanism for citizens to participate directly in building the information resources they need by supplying wild plant data, and gives all users an opportunity to learn about the beauty and diversity of California plant life.

Our Speaker

Join us as we welcome Cynthia Powell, Executive Director of CalFlora.  Cynthia is responsible for coordinating all Calflora programs, research, outreach, and advocacy, as well as fundraising and management, so she wears many hats (see picture).
