Every year the Native Plant Society of Texas recognizes organizations and individuals. The Shirley Lusk Memorial, honors a citizen scientist for collecting and preserving Texas native plants for public education by providing outstanding contribution of herbarium voucher specimens. Jeff Quayle is recognized this year for his collection of over 1000 herbarium specimens stored at the Botanical Research Institute of Texas in Fort Worth. Shirley would be pleased. Congratulations to all the recipients for their awards as well.
What a great day in the field today. We went to the Garnett Preserve. One of the most beautiful spots in Montague County.
