The collaborative Ethnobotany Project has been documenting southern California and northern Baja California's Native people's contemporary uses of native plants. The primary goal is to create a resource for Native people in this region to share and learn traditional knowledge about native plant uses and gathering practices. The project began in 2007. Two publications have resulted so far: a 2010 large-scale calendar and book in 2015. A series of workshops are planned for the Native community through the project. The recent book will be translated into Spanish and Kumiai later this year. The second goal of this project is to educate the general population about Native people's continued dependence on native plants and habitats, and how they are effected by development, climate change, and other contemporary issues.
