The N.C. Plant Conservation Program develops regulations, voluntary programs and cooperative partnerships to help protect imperiled species and their habitats. The program’s responsibilities include the listing of North Carolina's endangered and threatened plant species and the development of conservation programs designed to permanently protect them. Acquisition and management of important plant sites and habitats are among many methods used to boost and preserve native plants and their ecosystems.
At 9:45 a.m., there will be an optional hike at the Penny’s Bend natural area site, 3710 Snow Hill Road, Durham.
