The goal of this project is to digitize specimens collected near the Walls of Jericho protected area.

The Walls of Jericho is a beautiful and extremely diverse section of public land found in Northern Alabama, at the southern end of the Cumberland Plateau. The area is relatively unknown botanically and is home to many unique endemic species, with many more yet to discover! Join Utah botanist-amateurist, Garrett Billings, as he traverses a completely new flora. Contributions to this project will help him earn his Master’s Degree – The next step needed to achieve his goals in protecting our deteriorating, yet beautiful world, and eventually in becoming the King of the Environment - A modest goal requiring the support of all those who dream big.
