Ron Long has just returned from a two week expedition to Pink Mountain, where he was able to photograph, catalog and map the positions of plant species on the summit plateau. Ron describes the wildflowers this year as being "spectacular".

 

Range Extensions

Despite the fact that no comprehensive survey has been done the relatively high number of known range extensions that are represented by the plants on Pink Mountain is significant. This list will no doubt be extended when the survey is completed.

Range extensions are important indicators of the lack of knowledge of the Pink Mountain area. Enough is known to emphasize the special nature of Pink Mountain and it is unthinkable that resource development could be allowed to destroy this unique site even before we know what will be lost.
