Arizona Rare Plant Guide (AZ)
Produce a field guide of the rare and endangered plants in the state of Arizona for use by field personnel of state, federal, and private resource agencies.
Grantee: USDA-Forest Service

Bearpoppy and Penstemon Protection (NV)
Protect two federal listing candidates by erecting a fence around 80 acres of white-margined penstemon being degraded by grazing and off-road vehicles and closing and rehabilitating two acres of Las Vegas bearpoppy being degraded by unauthorized trails.

Carpinteria Salt Marsh Plant Conservation (CA)
Conserve the endangered salt marsh bird's beak, the sensitive salt marsh daisy, and other native plant species on 245 acres in Carpinteria Salt Marsh by eradicating invasive weeds, propagating rare plants, and planting new wetland habitat.
