The goal of this year’s conference is to foster communication among conservation organizations, agencies, academics, educators, and the public. Sessions will focus on increased participation and discussion, with ample opportunities to network with fellow conservationists. Bring your ideas, insights, and expertise as we tackle some of the greatest challenges facing plant conservation today. Read more.
