Time: 12-1 p.m.

Fee: Free, preregistration required.


Although North Carolina is a botanically rich state, hundreds of species are considered rare or even imperiled. The North Carolina Plant Conservation Program is working across the state to protect imperiled plants in their native habitats now and for future generations. These projects range from Southern Appalachian bogs to Piedmont prairies, longleaf pine savannas, and much more in between. Come hear about the work the Plant Conservation Program is doing and how you might become involved.
