The NH Natural Heritage Bureau is currently deep into its field season, conducting ecological and botanical surveys for a wide variety of projects. Pictured here is a state-rare Cypripedium parviflorum (yellow lady's slipper) that is part of a population monitored during a field visit to a site in the North Country in late June, and a new colony of Conopholis americana (American cancerroot) discovered during a site visit in the Connecticut River valley in July.
