I am happy to announce I will be spending this summer at Coastal Maine Botanical Garden! I am very excited to get the opportunity to commune with mosses in the bryophyte friendly environment of Maine. It is another milestone in that it is the last coastal state I will visit on the east coast (or the US, except now for Alaska) and the 6th state I have lived in.

I’ll have the chance to work alongside fellow moss enthusiast Bill Cullina (if you haven’t already, go get one of his books. Of course I particularly like Native Ferns, Moss, and Grasses) and the plant recorder there, Sharmon Provan. Aside from a few potential mossy projects I will be doing the typical plant records duties that I have done for the past 2 summers, which I absolutely love.

Now I just need to find a place to live in Boothbay Harbor…
