Morro Calzada

This isolated mountain is home to many of the plants that we find on the uplands to the west and others with phytogeographic connections elsewhere. We are sampling this small mountain to provide information on species diversity and rarity. Building interest and respect for the environment is a challenge. In the future, a plan calls for labeling representative trees along the trails on the Morro and providing information, including color photographs of rare and endangered species.
