Become a National Meeting Underwriter
Plants are essential to life on Earth. But, one in five plant species world-wide are threatened with extinction.
From ferns to cacti, 4,400 of these threatened plants are in the United States and Canada.
The Center for Plant Conservation (CPC) is a one-of-a-kind network of conservation partners, collectively known as CPC Participating Institutions (PIs). Now including more than 60 institutions – both big and small, that collaboratively work to save the rare and endangered plants of the United States and Canada. CPC PIs maintain the CPC National Collection of Endangered Plants. To ensure that all are using the best and most up-to-date means possible to Save Plants, eachyear, CPC convenes a meeting of its Participating Institutions. More than 100 of the leading plant conservation professionals in the world from botanical organizations come together for this three-day conference to share, learn, and create the cutting-edge science and technology used to save rare and endangered flora.
In order to keep the cost of registration affordable for all our partners, we rely on the generosity of individuals and corporations to underwrite some of the expenses associated with hosting these important meetings.
We invite you to support plant conservation by underwriting our National Meeting.
Please see opportunities on the next page. We are always open to discuss other ideas as well.
In 2020, the National Meeting will be held at the Denver Botanic Garden.
