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.

    Please count me in! I’ve always had a slightly eccentric need to know about all the growing things around me and it’s time to learn more about the plants on our wooded property. Thanks so much for setting this up for us!

  2. Melissa Wiley says:

    Oh the credit doesn’t go to me–it goes to scsours who started the project! 🙂

    I’ll add you to the list above, Kathy.

  3. MamaB says:

    We’re in! Thanks for promoting it otherwise I’d not have known about it at all.

  4. JoVE says:

    I sent your previous post to my partner, Mat, as he’s been doing botany with Tigger this summer. He’s keen and didn’t even flinch much about the possibility of blogging. We haven’t worked out those details yet, but I think we’re in. (The royal we. I suspect I’ll be observing from the sidelines.

  5. Ann Voskamp says:

    Yes, please count the Voskamp family in! Thank you, Melissa, for the heads up!

  6. MelanieB says:

    I think I’m going to join in.

  7. fiddler says:

    Count us in, here in rainy New England!

    Thanks, Melissa.

    I love the new button for the project. Sara at the Learning Umbrella introduced the project to me. She is in the Pacific Northwest. When I finally get around to starting it I will be able to “lifr” some of her knowledge. 🙂 The button is so darling that I am even more motivated.

  9. Patricia says:

    Thanks for finding my website via pings and putting me on the list. I hadn’t responded in the comments since we hadn’t officially started yet–so far it was just me whining about why my family isn’t always as enthusiastic as I am. But *I* am in–and I think I’ll be able to wheedle in some helpers along the way.
    Oh, and we’re in Northern California.

    The Learn-O-Rama is located in the middle of North Carolina. We just moved here from Ft. Lauderdale and are looking forward to learning the names of 100 temperate zone plants.

  11. fiddler says:

    Hi again,

    My 100 Species blog can be found at http://100speciesfiddler42.blogspot.com/

    Thanks again, Melissa!

  12. Ivy says:

    Hi, Melissa. Please count me in. My first post is finally up. 🙂

  13. Love2learn Mom says:

    I just posted about it. What fun!!!

  14. fiddler says:

    Here’s a link to my blog (I hope I can post html code!):

    100 Species at Rockhound Place

    It’s been fun checking out other participants’ blogs–I’ve seen some wonderful photos of plants from around the world!

  15. almamater says:

    Count us in! I announced to the children that I was going to need some photographic assistance and some research assitants for a special botany project and they nearly tripped over each other in the effort to volunteer. We are in Central Texas.

  16. Beth says:

    What a terrific idea! I was so glad to learn about this. We’re city dwellers in the rust belt, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have pockets of beauty all around us, and I’m hoping this will get me to appreciate what IS here (and to be able to recognize and name it) even more. I’m sure my list will build very slowly, but I’m going to give this a try!

  17. Paige says:

    I joined, too…


    I already have my 100 species (east coast, it *does* seem to be easier here, lol) but I’m going back to add other things to the posts, more(better)pictures, what I know about the plants, and links to more information about them.

  18. GailV says:

    Count me in! I haven’t started the “real” posts about the plants yet, though, as I’ve just realized that I’m a terrible plant photographer. As soon as I brush up that skill a bit and get a photo that doesn’t look like an anonymous green blob, I’ll be good to go.

  19. Annie Kate says:

    Count me in. I love this great idea!

    Finally getting in on this with my own blog. I’m glad to see I’m not alone two years after the ship first set sail!
