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.
