Thanks again for joining the mission on look alike buttercups! We're about to write up a final project summary and I'd like to use one of your photos for our report.

Can we use your photo, and if so, what name would you like us to use to credit you? I'll post a link to the final report once we're done, let us know!

We would love to have this spotting be a part of our mission on the distribution of native and invasive look-alike buttercups. The marsh marigold looks similar to the lesser celandine and many people get them confused. Feel free to join!
