Inventory and Monitoring Projects

The Conservation Committee of the Plant Conservation Alliance-Medicinal Plant Working Group began conducting inventory and monitoring projects for medicinal plants in 2000.  Projects are conducted on public land and led by federal scientists and botanical experts with the assistance of lay volunteers. 

These projects exemplify the very core of the MPWG mission: To promote public/private partnerships in the sustainable use and conservation of medicinal plants.  By furthering our understanding of our native flora, federal land managers can make more informed management decisions.  By including our citizens in the projects, we help bring to fruition the conservation partnership model that empower citizens to take a more active role in the management of their own flora.  I am very appreciative and inspired by the work we have accomplished together.” Excerpt from a letter to the Garden Club of America, Letter of Partnership, February 2006
