The first of February we finishing our third season volunteering at the Castolon Visitor Center in Big Bend National Park, Texas. A common question that I hear in the Visitor Center goes something like..”Do you know the name of this flower (plant, tree, etc.) that I saw….?”. Since I knew almost nothing about plants of the Chihuahuan desert, I wasn’t much help. Unfortunately, a lot of the books we looked at didn’t help much because either the pictures were too small or of poor quality so identification was difficult. This is where the inspiration for our project book came about. For three seasons, we have been hiking trails and taking photos of the plants we have seen here.
The book is available for viewing or to download for free here in PDF format. It works well on tablets as well as PC’s. A PDF reader is required to view it.
