Plant Atlas Project of Arizona - PAPAZ - Arizona Flora

 

PAPAZ - Plant Atlas Project of Arizona

 

The Plant Atlas Project of Arizona (PAPAZ), is a statewide partnership between the Arizona Native Plant Society, Grand Canyon Trust, Desert Botanical Garden, Northern Arizona University, Museum of Northern Arizona, and the U.S. Forest Service to document the diversity and distribution of Arizona's flora.

 

The Summer 2014 issue of the Plant Press has a great article detailing PAPAZ

Budding Botanist Training

 

Our Budding Botanist program is an important part of accomplishing our mission.  Botanists-in-training learn plant identification, collection, and documentation skills in field and classroom settings from regional experts. In turn, they bring high-level technical skills to assist with flora projects and documentation. This win-win proposition gives volunteers an opportunity to develop a valuable skill set and allows PAPAZ to expand the number of floristic studies.

 

Getting Involved


Budding Botanist training is offered on a demand basis, often tied to staffing up a new flora project. If you are interested in getting involved in northern and central Arizona flora projects, Email Here.  If you are interested in southern Arizona flora projects, Email Here.

 

Explore the Arizona map below to see where we are working.  Feel free to contact the lead botanist on a project for more information and to see how you can contribute.
