Episode Notes

When you're out in your garden or somewhere in nature, do you ever stop to admire the amazing diversity of plants you come across? There are countless species and varieties throughout the world that each provide something unique to the ecosystem.

Just like wildlife, plant species can also become extinct. A plant that perhaps provides shelter or food for wildlife, or maybe a life saving cure for a disease.
Plant conservationists play a key role in helping to ensure that doesn't happen.

On this #plantchat episode we discuss the importance of plant conservation with guest, Kayri Havens, Ph.D of the Chicago Botanic Garden. Our host is, Beth Tuttle, President & CEO, American Horticultural Society. Kayri is the winner of the American Horticultural Society’s 2019 Liberty Hyde Bailey Award.
