Fort Worth, Texas at the Botanical Research Institute of Texas

CPC’s 2018 National Meeting will be at the Botanical Research Institute of Texas (BRIT). BRIT is home to the 9th largest herbarium in the country with almost 1.5 million specimens. BRIT shares its grounds and education programing with the Fort Worth Botanic Garden, the oldest botanic garden in Texas. This three-day conference brings together the leaders in plant conservation of the CPC Participating Institutions (PI) to share and learn cutting-edge science and technology used to save plants.

Sessions will include presentations from PI Conservation Officers, and CPC network partners on plant conservation accomplishments and challenges. We will continue updating CPC Best Practices and learn about new tools on the CPC website. Thursday’s Star Award Dinner will be held at BRIT and honor those who demonstrate the concern, cooperation, and personal investment to conserve our imperiled native plants. Saturday’s field trip to the Eagle Mountain Park will showcase local botanical wonders.
