Hike and Learn: Biodiversity

  • Ashland Public Library - Guanajuato Rm. 410 Siskiyou Blvd Ashland, OR, 97520 United States

Doug Kendig, botanist will show and tell about the biodiversity within the Cascade Siskiyou National Monument and what we'll see on the hike to Boccard Point. (See the hike description on Saturday, July 18) For the past 20 years he developed and managed the District Native Plant Program as part of the BLM Plant Conservation Program, with collateral duties as the CSNM Research and Monitoring Coordinator. Some of the more important accomplishments as the District Native Plant Coordinator include over 800 wildland native plant collections from southwest OR, the development of a western regional inter-agency IDIQ seed increase contract and native plant market that supports commercial farmers who in turn provide source identified native plant seed to federal agencies for restoration projects.
