Conservation: People, Plants, Inspiration, Impact
Ms. Jennifer Ceska will share her experience working with the Georgia Plant Conservation Alliance over the last 24 years, sharing postcards from the field. Jennifer will share the celebrations and failures from lessons learned and stories gathered working with over 50 organizations and over 200 conservation professionals who are passionate, driven, dedicated, and well and truly busy. We all have more to do than we can do. But we find that working together profoundly helps. In Georgia we believe networking to be a powerful tool for conservation. There are thoughtful choices we made from the beginning to stay project driven. Networking for conservation comes with extra time pressures, the dire needs of critically imperiled species, the workloads carried by conservation professionals, the mirth of the seasons, trying to collect and increase viable material, and the slow recovery of plants and their habitats requiring years of commitment and repeated actions and treatments. The work is daunting, and the work is doable. By working together, we leverage limited resources of equipment, effort, energy, and time. Along the way we move from colleagues to friends to conservation family. Time is short for some of these species. We have work to do.
