This competition focuses on the Tiburon Paintbrush, a beautiful little wildflower that can only be seen in a few select places within the Golden Gate National Parks. It was likely always rare, but habitat modification in its remaining strongholds threatens the viability of the species.
And that’s where you come in: the first four people to help save the Tiburon Paintbrush by completing the conservation action item for the species will win a copy of John Muir Laws’ new Pocket Guide Set to the San Francisco Bay Area!
Tiburon Paintbrush Laws Guide to SF Bay
The Pocket Guide Set includes four user-friendly foldout field guides that are small enough to tote along in a pocket, yet durable enough to weather abuse at the bottom of any backpack. Each fold out covers a different Bay Area ecotype so you’ll have quick access to the plants and animals in the habitat you visit.
To win the prize you must be one of the first four competitors to sign-up for the GGNP Endangered Species Big Year, complete the action item for the Tiburon Paintbrush, and log your action into the GGNP Endangered Species Big Year Tiburon Paintbrush website.
LONG–TIME COMPETITORS: PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS COMPETITION IS RESTRICTED TO NEW BIG YEAR COMPETITORS FOR 2010. IF YOU COMPETED IN 2008 YOU ARE INELIGIBLE FOR THIS PRIZE.
Good luck and see you outside!
