This project is being undertaken to try and determine what ferns, fern allies and orchids exist in the Sangre de Cristo Mountain Range. This will be the second year of this survey.  The first year’s survey went exceedingly well. Six new Botrychium ferns as well as an additional populations of the rare fern Asplenium trichomanes ssp ramosum were found in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Cacti will be an additional focus during the second year of the survey.
