Conference Mission Statement
We face an uncertain future - economically, politically, and climatically. Those concerned with managing, researching or protecting native plant communities, rare plants and their habitats need to be aware of these changes and have the necessary tools to effectively address them. We will have papers, both invited and contributed, that will engage all in a dialogue intended to raise questions and find solutions. Participants from throughout northwestern North America will contribute ideas and meet colleagues for future collaboration.
