I gave a presentation on using iNaturalist to a chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas last night. One person in the audience asked if they should post observations from a particular restoration site.
This site is a former golf course that is now a Water retention area, green area. If you’re interested it is called Exploration Green and was on the national news just after hurricane Harvey as it saved the houses in the area from flooding. This site was planned and planted with plants native to the local area. I have posted a few observation from this site in the past, but they were all bird observations.
I also spent time at few different restoration sites and this though has come to mind several times. How do I know if a plant was planted in this location, or is it native to that particular spot. Do you mark all plant observations from a restoration area as cultivated? Personally, I think that is extreme, but where does one draw the line?
Just curious as to where and how you draw line to mark a plant as cultivated?
