In 2017, ecologist and writer Jack Dash and documentary photographer Luke Swenson began the first comprehensive botanical flora of the Atascosa Highlands. Their fieldwork has developed into a transdisciplinary visual storytelling project combining botanical survey, oral history, and documentary photography to explore this notoriously rugged landscape. Atascosa Borderlands has been made possible through the non-profit fiscal sponsor SocialGood with support by the Kalliopeia Foundation.
