Saturday September 8 - "Plant Conservation and NCCPs"

Session Overview
- by
Greg Suba, director of CNPS Conservation Program:
CNPS will present its annual Conservation Symposium, a day-long series of talks and discussions addressing a focus topic held each September during our fall Chapter Council meeting. This year, speakers will present a retrospective, including case studies, of how plant species and plant communities have been addressed in Natural Community Conservation Plans (NCCPs) over the past 20 years. Presentations will include recommendations for improving plant community conservation in future NCCPs, and tips for plant advocates interested in engaging in NCCP processes in their Chapters.
