The Longleaf Pine Forest in the American South
Spaces Remaining: 194
Covering 92 million acres from Virginia to Texas, the longleaf pine ecosystem was one of the most extensive and biologically diverse ecosystems in North America. Today these forests have declined to a fraction of their original extent, threatening such species as the gopher tortoise, the red-cockaded woodpecker and the Venus fly-trap. Conservationists have proclaimed longleaf restoration a major goal, but has it come too late?” Join us to hear of this remarkable and important “story”. Fee: $15 ($10 NCBG Members)
