What happened to the NY Flora Atlas?

– Posted in: Native/Invasive

Does anyone know what happened to the NY Flora Atlas? I can get a cached image of the site on Google, but my browser tells me the server can’t be found. Did the organization go under? Did they lose funding for the website? It seemed like such a worthy project, mapping native populations of various plants. Every state should have such a website for both natives and invasives. Does your state have such a website, either government sponsored or state-sponsored?

In the end, this may be the most important thing about frost: Frost slows us down. In spring, it tempers our eagerness. In fall, it brings closure and rest. In our gotta-go world–where every nanosecond seems to count–slowness can be a great gift. So rather than see Jack Frost as an adversary, you could choose to greet him as a friend.

sewobsessed–the link you gave was the link I had in my bookmarks and the first one I tried. When it said “Server not found,” that’s when I tried googling it. They must have been doing some kind of system maintenance, because it certainly works now. Thanks for taking the time to let me know.
