Web Finds

DesertUSA Wildflower Watch
DesertUSA Wildflower Watch contains wildflower sightings for the Southwest, including Arizona, California, New Mexico, Texas, Nevada, and Utah. Reports are generated from wildflower enthusiasts, not just parks and rangers. If you find a "must see" spot that you are unfamiliar with, there are links to maps and field guides for purchase.
