Theresa in Alaska said she might participate. I hope she does! Alaska! And several other commenters have said they might join in. I’ll add those links as they come.

Here’s my family’s running list for San Diego. I’ll post new entries as new posts and then add the info to the running list. We already have a bunch more plants to enter.

If you’d like to be added to this list, leave a link in the comments! (And if you’re not a blogger but want to share your family’s list, let me know. I can put you in your own post. 🙂 ) And if you’re on the list above and would like me to add your location, leave a comment for that too. I think it’s even more fun if we know the general whereabouts of people’s lists.

Don’t know what the 100 Species Challenge is? This post explains.

New Year’s Resolutions, Anyone?

My friend Jordan’s friend Lynne Schreiber could use your help:

I am writing an article for Better Homes and Gardens about making New Year’s resolutions with your kids and as a family. If you know anyone who does this with their kid or kids or as a family, please let me know. I have tons of experts who can speak to this matter but I need real people, too. Thank you!

Is this a family tradition for you? If so, Lynne would like to hear your story. She can be reached at lynne (at) lynneschreiber (dot) com, or visit her website.
