Conserving the Rare Plants of New York

November 6, 2020

Event Description 

Since 1800, an estimated 500 species of plants have disappeared from the New York City flora. These species can be found outside the City, but are no longer found in the five boroughs. Another 250 species are thought to be rare in the City, known from only one or two populations. Join the foremost practitioners in the conservation of rare plants in New York State and New York City as they present the methods used to monitor and conserve rare species and what the public can do to help.
