LUNCHBOX Talk: Wildflowers of the Eno River Diabase Area

with Lesley Starke, North Carolina Plant Conservation Program

Date: Thursday, August 13, 2020

Time: 12:00 PM-1:00 PM

Fee: Free, preregistration required.


The Eno River Diabase area is home to remarkable plant diversity, driven by the unique geology and soils found here. The NC Plant Conservation Program and its partners have been working together to protect this area and the species which make it so special. Lesley will provide a history of the conservation and protection efforts in this area, share current management and research endeavors, and end with information about how you can get involved.



We're expanding our partnership with the Friends of Plant Conservation to offer several excursions and Lunchbox Talks that highlight some of our state's rarest plants and natural areas. 


This event is a partnership between the NCBG and the Friends of Plant Conservation.




 Also see the Excursion: Early Autumn Wildflowers and Vegetation in the Eno Diabase Area on September 19.
