Speaker: Cythia Powell, Executive Director Calflora
Join Calflora’s Executive Director Cynthia Powell to discuss new Calflora tools for CNPS Calflora users. Calflora’s plant database hosts over 2 million plant occurrences, some of which come directly from San Diego CNPS members. Cynthia will cover Calflora’s new plant photo project, planting guide, population monitoring tools, email alerts, and speak more generally about the uses of Calflora for CNPS chapters. She would also like to know how Calflora can better serve the San Diego CNPS Chapter and to answer any of your questions. This is a free event.
After 3 years as Calflora’s GIS Project Manager, Cynthia Powell is now Calflora’s Executive Director. She graduated with her MS in GIS in 2010 forecasting Mokelumne River water supply based on MODIS remote sensing snow pack images. She’s been examining what was under that snow — plants — ever since. She now coordinates all Calflora programs, research, outreach, and advocacy, as well as fundraising and management.
