Seeds and Climate Change: A conversation with seed collectors
January 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
A conversation among seed collectors about experiences and observations regarding woody plant seed collection and climate change. This panel, with collectors from Oregon, Washington and California [pending] will share experiences from the summer 2021 collection season and heat dome and fire impacts, as relevant, as well as longer term observations. Seasoned collectors will reflect upon decades of work, in conversation with the next generation of seed collectors. The group will discuss challenges, needs, emerging strategies and areas of hope.
