Pennsylvania Rare Plant Forum
The Rare Plant Forum exists to provide information and recommendations on rare plant conservation to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. In addition to discussing proposed changes to the list of Plants of Special Concern in Pennsylvania (POSCIP), there will be a few related presentations. This is an excellent opportunity to connect and work with other botanists, amateur and professional, who share your interest in the flora of Pennsylvania. All people interested in the conservation of Pennsylvania's native flora are encouraged to attend this meeting.
