Our speaker this month is Chris Frye, who has served as Maryland’s chief botanist for 26 years. He leads conservation efforts for plants and maintains the state’s list of rare, threatened, and endangered plant species. Chris will discuss some highlights of his research, detail some activities for management and recovery of rare plants, S3 plant species to look for, and talk generally about the challenges to conservation posed by small population size and isolation.
