CENTER FOR PLANT CONSERVATION INC
March 30, 2011
The Center for Plant Conservation stands in a class of its own when it comes to preserving native plant diversity in the US. Since its inception, the Center has been a consistent -- and sometimes the only -- voice on the side of plant diversity. By combining the assets of existing institutions, such as botanic gardens and arboreta, with those of land managers, CPC provides a pathway to survival for many species that would otherwise face a grim future.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
...seeing the change in public attitudes toward conservation when they are exposed to the importance of plant diversity.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
...work even harder to partner with land mangers, to ensure a future in the wild.
Professional with expertise in this field & Helped the organization in its formative years, and have continued to admire its progess ever since.
