Conserving the Rare Plants of New York
Friday, November 6, 2020: 10am - 12pm EST

Third Annual New York City EcoFlora Conference

Join the foremost practitioners in the conservation of rare plants in New York State and New York City as they present the methods used to monitor and conserve rare species and what the public can do to help.

As we learned during the Second Annual New York City EcoFlora Conference in 2019, The Historical Flora of New York City: Implications for Conservation Action, since 1800 an estimated 500 species of plants have disappeared from the New York City flora. These species can be found outside the City, but are no longer found in the five boroughs. Another 250 species are thought to be rare in the City, known from only one or two populations.

A Q&A session will follow the presentations.

Brian M. Boom - "Welcome and Introduction from the Host & Moderator"

Steve Young - "Keeping Track of New York’s Rare Plants: The New York Natural Heritage Program and Rare Plant Exploration"

Clara Holmes - "Documenting and Protecting the Rare Plants of New York City"

Marielle Anzelone - Q&A Special Guest
