Grace Markman has worked as a field botanist and educator in New York City and the Northeast for over thirty years.
Her workshop will focus on successful strategies that have been utilized to conserve and promote our native flora. A power point presentation will be given on creative projects initiated by both individuals and small groups in New York City and the Northeast. Can you help initiate a native plant arboretum or create a new plant corridor? We will consider positive effective ways to involve our local and state officials. After this presentation we will divide into small groups to share ideas and create new ones that can be implemented to address the vital issues of conservation and promotion of our native flora.
The mission of the Brooklyn Bird Club is to encourage and promote birdwatching and conservation in Brooklyn and beyond.
