On-Demand: Biodiversity & Conservation | Sustainability Index Series
In this webinar, you'll learn more about how your garden can enhance its biodiversity and conservation goals. Gardens worldwide engage in biodiversity and conservation work through wild collecting trips, preserving specimens in herbaria and seed banks, championing research programs to learn about at-risk plants, and protecting and propagating native plants throughout their region as well as in their own gardens.
Beatriz Maruri-Aguilar from Cadereyta Regional Botanic Garden, Damon Waitt from North Carolina Botanic Garden, and Silvia Alvarez Clare from The Morton Arboretum will present on biodiversity and conservation initiatives at their gardens. Each of the presenting gardens received recognition through our Sustainability Index for their extraordinary biodiversity and conservation work. We also hear from Holly Forbes, Curator at the University of California Botanical Garden and Chair of the Association's Plant Conservation Community, who speaks about the Community, its resources, and how to get involved.
