Geum radiatum Preservation in the Blue Ridge
with Virginia Ward
Since the age of 12, Virginia Ward has been a devoted summer volunteer working with Blue Ridge Parkway plant ecologist Dr. Chris Ulrey to monitor critically endangered plants such as Spreading avens (Geum radiatum) and Heller’s blazing star (Liatris helleri). Ward’s passion for the plants is matched only by her efforts to protect them. She will talk about the challenges of preserving these fragile Alpine relics from the Ice Age.
This month’s meeting will be by Zoom call which begins at 6:30 for social time and the program begins at 7:00pm.
