Causes. Join NYBG for the Native Plants Summit: Current Status, Conservation, and Outlook for Plants of the Northeast. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 18
9 a.m.–3 p.m. Featuring Presentations, a Lunch Break, and Panel Discussion.

The northeastern U.S. hosts a rich diversity of native plants, many of which play essential roles for humans and the environment. Alarmingly, a significant number of these species are suffering a precipitous decline. Many are imperiled as a result, including one-quarter of species native to New York State. Despite these figures, no comprehensive or integrated program exists to study trends across the region. Through a series of compelling presentations, followed by a panel discussion, this Summit will address the gaps in our knowledge. We invite you to join us as the region’s native plant experts discuss the state of our area’s plant species, plot the best course forward, and highlight ways in which everyone can make a difference in saving native plants from slipping through the cracks.
