Announcements

The Announcements Forum is a platform-wide channel for announcing plant conservation news such as posting job postings, project news, upcoming conferences/workshops updates. Users are welcome to ask follow up questions on announcements, however, questions related to specific conservation topics should be posted within topic-specific boards. The CPC National Office will use this forum as a primary channel for making program announcements - so make sure your conservation officers are signed up!

Dear CPC Colleagues, After careful consideration, we have decided to postpone the CPC National Meeting until October 8-9, 2020. We are especially grateful to Denver Botanic Gardens, who have agreed to be our host as was planned for May and are accommodating this change. We are awaiting word from the National Seed Lab (NLGRP) in Fort Collins, but anticipate that we will have a pre-conference field trip on October 7 to NLGRP.
