Celebrating International Women’s Day in March, we highlighted the careers of notable women working every day in the name of plants.
In February, we took a (tongue-in-cheek) look at some of our imperiled plants that challenge our notion of what a "relationship" should be.
We started off the year, last January, by highlighting the tools and techniques that are on the cutting edge of plant conservation science.
Welcome to the final issue of SavePlants for 2018. As we regularly do this time of year, we both reflect on the past 12 months and look forward to the New Year. This last year represents one of the most productive in recent CPC history, with a number of incredible milestones and essential accomplishments.
Today, plant conservationists have embraced technology to Save Plants in ways we never could before. Advances in science, communication and conservation application are all led by our ability to embrace and harness the potential of technology.
Our October 2018 newsletter features the stories of 3 CPC Board Trustees who also serve, or have served, as Botanical Garden Directors.
Our September 2018 newsletter closely examines the effects of fire, both negative and positive on plant life.
