CPC Newsletter Ideas for 2020!

Hi everyone, 

As the CPC Newsletter team lines out topics for 2020, we are soliciting your input on stories or themes that you would like to see. This can be a story that your institution has to share with the broader network, or a story or theme that you would like to learn more about. 

Past themes have been quite broad and varied, including: northeast rare plant conservation, impact of hurricanes, parasitic plant conservation, wildfire threats, the importance of collaboration, orchid conservation, climate change, and more. So… anything goes!

How can we spread awareness of the Plant Nucleus platform to potential conservationists outside the CPC network?

The goal stated in our IMLS grant is to bring the expertise of the CPC network to a larger audience. What communication channels (listservs, conferences) or communication strategies (marketing, social media) would be most useful in spreading encourage stake holders such as government agencies, land managers, garden clubs, and conservation-minded citizens to utilize the resources on this site.
