The next Conservation Conference will be held in 2022. Watch this space for further information early in 2022.
This is a biennial project of the Montana Native Plant Society. The 10th Conference was held in 2018 in conjunction with the U.S. Forest Service & the Montana Natural Heritage Program. Montana’s biennial Plant Conservation Conference treats emerging issues in applied botany for managers, scientists, students, and plant enthusiasts. The first day of the 2018 meeting was a symposium on Montana’s threatened plants, including the potential ESA listing of whitebark pine and the delisting of water Howelia. Abstracts for the presentations are available in the 2018 Conference Proceedings. The 2020 Conference was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which also prevented a hoped for rescheduling. See you in 2022.
