“NatureServe Network: An Overview of Botanical and Ecological Work to Guide Conservation”

A (Virtual) Lunchtime Lecture by Dr. Patrick McIntyre (NatureServe)

Join us as ecologist, conservation biologist, and nature enthusiast Dr. Patrick McIntyre discusses how the conservation non-profit NatureServe provides the scientific basis for effective conservation action.

This 1-hr seminar will include a short Q&A session after the lecture.
