I joined this party late, so I’ve been busily catching up the past couple of days, searching out and documenting (through my iPhone) many of the wildflowers and other plants that inhabit the greater Anchorage area, while belatedly participating in the 2022 Alaska Botany Bioblitz.

Organized by the Alaska Native Plant Society, the bioblitz is something of a botanical orgy, intended to compile as many observations of Alaska’s plants as possible between July 1 and July 15—and perhaps add to our collective knowledge of the state’s community of plants (or rather communities, given the wide range of ecosystems that occur within Alaska).
