How many plants can we document during a single week in Texas? Let's find out! Native Plant Society of Texas is leading a bioblitz challenge for anyone to document the wild plants wherever they are  anywhere within the state. Observations need to be made from Oct. 20 27, and they need to have photo evidence so they can be verified by others.

Ideally, we want to see more native plants documented, but all plants count! Plants observed should be wild and not cultivated. If you do document a cultivated plant, please mark it as cultivated!

Observations will be posted in this iNaturalist project
