Ecological and biological factors influencing the presence and distribution of sagebrush taxa within the Uncompahgre Plateau - implications to community restoration 

 

Background: This annual multi-stakeholder meeting brings together industry, agencies, practitioners, NGOs and researchers to advance our ability to put "The right seed in the right place at the right time" in the greater Colorado Plateau region of Utah, Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico.  The CPNPP is led by the Bureau of Land Management’s Plant Conservation Program effort to work with all stakeholders to implement the National Seed Strategy for Rehabilitation and Restoration.  

Special focus for 2018: We particularly invite those working in a Reclamation context to join us.

Topics of interest for this meeting include:

  • The Plant Materials Market/ Economics
  • Seed Testing and Certification
  • Seed and Seedling Collection and Production
  • Plant Materials Research & Development Pipeline
