Several plant conservation institutions have teamed up to initiate a biennial meeting that brings academic and amateur botanists together to share current research in the region.
Invited speakers will cover a variety of topics, including important recent field discoveries, early botany in North America, species interactions in a Pennsylvania forest, lichens of Pennsylvania, recovery of rare native plants after invasive species removal, and addressing the shortage of botanical capacity in academia and land management agencies.
