Conserving California’s Rare Plants with Amy Patten & Christa Horn
January 14 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
CNPS and our partners California Plant Rescue (CaPR) are working to conserve California’s rarest plants through the CNPS Rare Plant Program, citizen science, and long-term seed bank collections. Learn about how Rare Plant Treasure Hunt volunteers track down long-lost rare plant populations that haven’t been seen in decades and search for new populations in
underexplored areas. We’ll discuss how CaPR, a collaborative with the goal of securing the entire California flora in conservation collections, is using seed bank collections as a management strategy for the persistence of wild plant populations and as an insurance policy against extinction. Enjoy photos of beautiful local rare plants and their habitats, and learn how to get involved!
