CoNPS Field Trip Plant Lists

Field Trip by CoNPS Chapter

Each CoNPS chapter organizes and runs field trips to look at native plants.  On many trips, the plants seen are recorded.  This page contains links to the each of the CoNPS field trip plant lists which have been made available to the world on the herbarium consortium, SEINet.

The plant lists are organized on this page by Chapter.  Click on the plant list you want and that will take you To SEINet. The plant lists on SEINET can be displayed in many formats: alphabetically by genus and species, with images, with common names, with synonyms, with authors, notes and vouchers.  And you can download and print your list.
