My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Center for Plant Conservation Inc, St Louis, MO, USA
There are many institutions and NGOs that advocate for plant conservation in some way. However, few actually foster conservation by actively performing the work needed for conservation, including surveys, monitoring, developing ex situ seed banks, and participating in restoration and recovery. The Center for Plant Conservation, acting through its member gardens, is such an institution, and clearly leads the effort in the United States, doing so with considerable and collective scientific experience.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
contributing to the national seed collection and participating in its workshops.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
expand the organization by increasing the number of member gardens and enhancing the CPC support staff.
