MNPS 2001 Annual Fall Conference, "Shaping Nature: The Impact of Human and Natural Disturbance on Our Native Flora"

  • 09/29/2001
  • 09/30/2001
  • Historical Society of Talbot County, Easton, MD

This year's conference highlights the role of disturbance in shaping diverse plant communities. We will explore the ecological concept of disturbance that occurs in healthy ecosystems as well as ones that are seriously degraded due to extensive human impact/disturbance and the suppression of disturbance (e.g., fire). The program will intrigue natural history enthusiasts as well as gardeners interested in restoration landscaping. Lectures, exhibits, and plant sales will be held in the morning. Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning field trips will explore special habitats of the Eastern Shore.
