During the Covid 19 Lockdown Emily began a plant survey of Spencer Acres using iNaturalist as a portfolio of the flora, fauna, and animalia on the farm. A year later, over 300 species have been logged and identified including Blood Root, an critical species. The study has confirmed the vast degree of biodiversity on the Farm, including a large variety of medicinal and edible plants. This Spring 40 native trees were planted including: Red Bud, Black Oak, Smooth Sumac, and Red Bud. Along with over 80 varieties of native wild flowers and medicinal herbs. We welcome visitors to the land to add to this Citizen Science project. This research directly links to the observations in Ralls County and Missouri.
