Description: The Friends of the Cumberland Trail are sponsoring a gathering of wildflower enthusiasts, gardeners, botanists, ecologists, and public land managers to expand the work of the Cumberland Seeds Project, a seed banking project focused on the Tennessee Cumberland Plateau and Cumberland Mountain regions. The conference plans to create partnerships between State Parks, State Forests, Wildlife Management Areas, National Park units, university programs, and private organizations to preserve germplasm for long-term ecological restoration needs and genetic research. The project’s goal is ambitious, and has not been achieved for any major ecoregion – the protection of an entire regional flora though germplasm preservation.
No charge, but pre-registration is required. For more information on speakers, agenda, and directions, go to the Friends of the Cumberland website.
