This project is not backed or funded by any agency, institution or organization but is a “Mom & Pop” operation run by a tiny group of volunteers who have poured their own savings into this project since its inception in 2007. While we are dedicated to providing the best plant identification resource on the web, we can't do it alone any more.
In 2012 we had 180,000 unique visitors, viewing over 1.6 million pages. If every person who used this web site more than once gave just $3, we would have enough funds to cover all of our field work and accelerate publishing for the foreseeable future. Many people have asked us to add more information per species, expand search criteria and add ever more species, but these cannot be done without financial support. Will you chip in to support features you want to see on this web site?
As one user recently put it:
“I have to say that I think this website is beyond fantastic. I use over a dozen websites to identify wildflowers, and while many of them are very helpful, minnesotawildflowers.info is head and shoulders above the others. This is where I always start. I can't thank you enough for making this resource available.”
If you, too, find Minnesota Wildflowers a useful resource, please help us keep it going and keep it growing.
As a 501(c)(3) public charity, all donations are tax-deductible. Please consider giving to a resource that will give back to many, for many years to come. Thank you for your support!
Donate any amount and get a screensaver as our thanks to you. The screensaver contains 50 high resolution images of our native species with their scientific names—13MB of beautiful images! Runs on Windows XP/Vista/7 (sorry to all our Mac fans). After your donation is processed return to this web site to receive download instructions.
Your donations help fund ongoing web development and hosting costs, as well as the extensive field work necessary to keep expanding the site with new species. No amount is too small, and we appreciate whatever you can give.

Thank you for your support!
We formed a non-profit organization, Minnesota Wildflowers Information, so we can provide some security for the future of the web site as a public resource. We are looking for anyone who might be interested in becoming a board member.
If you have any experience in business or financial management, applying for grants, fundraising, or any other non-profit activities and are interested in becoming a board member, please contact Katy Chayka at phone 651-399-4064 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
