A recent UN report predicts that climate change, invasive species, pollution, and other anthropogenic disturbances will have a disastrous effect on biodiversity worldwide. Any careful observer of nature in our region has witnessed significant changes to our local flora over the past few decades. Beloved wildflowers are vanishing from our forests and native trees are succumbing to deer, drought, and disease.
However, all is not lost! Nature lovers, gardeners, and scientists are joining together to battle invasive species and preserve and restore populations of the native plants that define our region’s distinct ecological character. Join NYBG to learn about what we can all do to help protect our imperiled biodiversity.
