7th Annual Colorado Rare Plant Symposium
Conservation Efforts and Status Review of G1 Plants of Colorado
September 10, 2010; 9:00 am-4:00 pm
UC Denver Auraria Campus
Join members of the Colorado Rare Plant Technical Committee (RPTC) for the 7th Annual Colorado Rare Plant Symposium. The RPTC is an ad-hoc group of agency and NGO botanists that has been working for years to advance rare plant efforts in the state. The RPTC will provide a photo review of the globally critically imperiled (G1) plant species known from Colorado, including some recently described species. Discussion of their relationship to Colorado's important plant areas, current conservation status and potential threats will be emphasized. Come prepared to exchange your knowledge of our rarest species with other amateur and professional botanists from throughout the state.
This one-day workshop will be held in collaboration with the Colorado Native Plant Society's annual meeting (Sept. 10-12). The symposium is open to any one with an interest in the rare plants of Colorado. A full agenda will be posted in August. Contact Jill Handwerk for more information at (970)491-5857 or email. There is a nominal fee of $10 to attend. To register visit the CoNPS website.
