Due to responses to the Corona Virus Pandemic, the conference was cancelled.
In the interest of protecting public health and safety, conference organizers decided to cancel the Montana Plant Conservation Conference.
Given that Monitoring the Effects of Climate Change is another important topic, we considered re-scheduling the conference, possibly for November. November is no longer under consideration and it is unlikely there can be another Conference until 2022. Updates will be posted here.
We hope that you can join us later and apologize for any inconvenience.
We encourage people to become familiar with the current CDC Prevention Guidance:
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 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.
