LUNCHBOX Talk: Emerging Issues in Conservation
with Misty Buchanan, Director, NC Natural Heritage Program
Date: Thursday, November 15
Time: 12-1 p.m.
Fee: Free, preregistration required.
What do Venus flytraps and red wolves have in common? Are any places in North Carolina wild enough for these carnivorous creatures? If these elements of our natural heritage are to have a future in North Carolina, they'll need a functioning ecosystem and a whole lot of help from their friends.
We'll explore why these species are rare, why traditional land conservation practices won't save them, and discuss how North Carolina might find new solutions to old conservation problems. Come prepared to share your ideas and discuss pros and cons of proposed alternatives.
