North Coast CNPS

November 13th, Wednesday, 7:30PM. 

Treasure Hunts and Databases Help Rare Plants 

How many rare plant species do we have in the Northcoast?  How are they doing? Is anyone keeping track of them? How does the CNPS Rare Plant Treasure Hunt Program relate to the California Natural Diversity Database (CNDDB)?  Greg O'Connell, our chapter's co-Rare Plant Chair and Environmental Scientist with California Department of Fish and Wildlife, will answer these questions and more. The answers will highlight CNDDB data from the Northcoast region.  The goal of CNDDB is to provide the most current information available on the state's most imperiled elements of natural diversity and to provide tools to analyze these data. Data in CNDDB help drive conservation decisions, aid in the environmental review of projects and land use changes, and provide baseline data helpful in recovering endangered species and for research projects.
