Meetings & Materials

Bi-Monthly Meetings

Virtual, bi-monthly meetings began in July 2020 and feature updates and/ or guest speakers followed by planning team discussions. Meetings are held the 2nd Monday of every-other month from 2 – 3:30 Eastern Time via Zoom and require pre-registration. 

Meetings in 2021 will focus on the Southeastern Plants Regional Species of Greatest Conservation Need (RSGCN). Only select meetings will be open to the public, as RSGCN working groups will utilize the established time for list development. SE PCA general membership is invited to  learn more about the project, process, and results during the following meetings: January 10th introduction, November 14th confirmed list presentation, January 9th ranking updates presentation, and March 13th, 2022 RSGCN report presentation.
