Native Plant Conservation Campaign: A National Native Plant Society for the United States
Shortly before COVID-19 shutdowns and quarantines, the Southeastern Partners in Plant Conservation (SePPCON) meeting was held in Atlanta. Dr. Emily Roberson of the Native Plant Conservation Campaign (NPCC) shared a presentation on this growing national network of native plant societies, botanic gardens, and others, and their approach to native plant conservation advocacy. People often overlook or ignore plants in their environment, even in natural areas and among environmental groups, making the need for plant advocacy that much greater. NPCC offers tools to effectively communicate the importance of native plant conservation to audiences that traditionally have been difficult to reach. Watch the video and learn more about NPCC and how they are working to make the importance of plants more understandable to all.
