An Abundance of Collaboration

Allegra collects Rabbitbrush

Allegra, a collaborating partner from the Bureau of Land Management’s Safford Field Office, is collecting seed from Ericameria nauseosa, the rabbitbrush. She’s collecting from a population on The Appleton-Whittel Research Ranch along the Babocomari River in the San Pedro River watershed.

This lovely plant grows along washes and roadsides in Santa Cruz County, cryptically blending into the landscape until late October/early November when it explodes with flowers. Pollinators of all types are drawn to this alluring plant during a time of nectar scarcity.
