Observation of the Day

Today's observation is a small tree called the New Mexico Locust (Robinia neomexicana). You may be able to tell by this plant's flowers that it is part of the pea family, Fabaceae. This plant is native to the southwestern United States, and can often be found in areas disturbed by fire. Have you seen the New Mexico Locust flowering in Coconino County?

The Willow Bend Nature Challenge is a fun June virtual challenge through iNaturalist, a free observation platform that can be used on your smart phone or computer. It acts as a place for people to record observations, learn how to identify organisms and interact with other enthusiasts and experts. Observations from iNaturalist also contribute to biodiversity science. Anyone can freely access and use this information.
