Southeastern Partners in Plant Conservation

Southeastern Partners in Plant Conservation will bring together government agencies, land managers, botanical gardens, university programs, experts, professionals, and other interested parties to build capacity and promote novel partnerships for plant conservation in the Southeast. Working with a wide range of stakeholders that represent diverse interests and perspectives, this effort seeks to stimulate collective successes in local, state, and regional plant conservation.

SePPCon 2020 sets the stage for success by promoting models of success and creative solutions to conservation challenges and builds on the success of the inaugural SePPCon 2016 Conference.
