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.
