NEW date for September GNPS meeting
September 20, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us on Tuesday, September 20th to hear Lisa Kruse, Botanist with the Nongame Conservation Section of the Wildlife Resources Division.
Lisa has worked for the Georgia Department of Natural Resources (GA DNR) since 2006. Her primary focus is monitoring plant community response to habitat restoration. Through this work she assists Georgia’s exceptional habitat restoration biologists, and she serves the GA DNR rare species burn team by coordinating prescribed burns for rare plant habitats. Lisa also prioritizes outreach to landowners who have special rare plant habitats. Lisa’s Masters of Science research was a floristic inventory in the Upper Etowah watershed. Her job offers her opportunities to continue learning Georgia’s fascinating flora while contributing to its conservation.
“Conservation of Georgia’s Coastal Plain Pitcher Plant Bogs”
Successful plant conservation requires a close relationship with a site’s flora, ecology, and landowners, as well as diverse people partnerships. Lisa will highlight these features in one case study that shows how Georgia’s conservation community is working together to restore and protect pitcher plant bogs in the coastal plain. It is yet another example of the well-known phrase, “It takes a village!”
