Become a Fire Follower using iNaturalist!

March 11, 2021 - May 31, 2021

We are excited to announce our Fire Followers community science campaign!

California experienced the largest fire season in 2020. Severe wildfires can cause considerable harm, but fire is also a natural component of California’s ecosystem. Fire often awakens sleeping seeds, and a light blanket of ash can nurture fresh growth. California’s “fire following” plants are an important part of the state’s natural diversity.

Help CNPS record the response of plants in areas burned in 2020. Together, we can collect data via iNaturalist and compare plants observed pre-and post-fire, increase understanding of California’s biodiversity, and collect valuable information to aid future conservation efforts.
