Rare Plant Workshop

The Nevada Rare Plant Workshop is the bi-annual meeting of the Rare Plant Committee of the Nevada Native Plant Society. It is held annually in either the Reno or Las Vegas areas, over two days during the first week of April. The next workshop is scheduled for April 5-6, 2018, in Reno. This workshop invites public- and private-sector botanical experts and resource professionals from throughout the west to gather and discuss current and new information, hear in-depth presentations on current research and projects, and to review and recommend conservation priorities for Nevada's rarest plant species. The Nevada Native Plant Society's status list assignments are reviewed and, when necessary, changed at this workshop for plant taxa of concern to the group. Other agency status assignments are reviewed, and change recommendations are recorded as appropriate for consideration by the agencies. Status changes and recommendations are made only with the consensus of all participants. The Workshop is convened by the Nevada Native Plant Society, and the Nevada Natural Heritage Program participates as an interested co-sponsor. Participation is by invitation, and requests for invitations of new participants are always welcome. For more information, contact the NNPS Rare Plants Chair.
