We’re mapping the iris. You can help!
As part of the plan to remove yellow flag iris, FVISS is mapping where patches of Yellow Flag Iris exist. You can report locations by downloading the iNaturalist app to your phone.
Kathy has already set up a yellow flag iris reporting site. The reporting is easy and instant.
