Launched in July 2022, this brand new project was made possible by funds set aside by the Utah State Legislature, under HB224 (Thanks, Rep. Ashley Matthews!) and is only possible to the incredible effort of Mindy Wheeler, Rare Plants Coordinator, USU and others.  Visit the site for complete details and the deadline to apply in 2023!
