With annual funding from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, she establishes monitoring projects, conducts research and surveys the state for new populations of these species. Through field investigations and research and management activities this program seeks to prevent imperiled species of plants and animals from becoming further imperiled, to affect the recovery of federally listed species so that they may be de-listed and to prevent the extirpation of critically imperiled species. Andrea’s PowerPoint presentation will discuss the current status of the rare plant program and the significance of the Act. Be prepared to learn while enjoying some beautiful slides.
