NBNC Naturalist Journeys Online Presentation Series - Slugs, Seed Dispersers, & Stone Walls: Community Ecology of Northeastern Herbaceous Flora with Nathan Kielhttps://northbranchnaturecenter.org/event/seeds-and-slugs/
Free | Live via ZOOM:
Every spring, naturalists seek the friendly faces of Spring Beauty, Red Trillium, and Bloodroot as symbols of warming temperatures and lengthening days. These dense carpets of herbaceous plants in the forest floor comprise the majority of vascular plant biodiversity in the north woods. Yet past agricultural activity and other contemporary factors have left many modern forests without these plants, and with little opportunity for natural reestablishment. In this presentation, learn about the little-known ecosystem of dispersers, pollinators, seed thieves, and the other characters involved in the ecology of spring ephemerals. We’ll discuss factors affecting plant distribution on the landscape, and explore current research and restoration initiatives around eastern forests.

NBNC Naturalist Journeys Online Presentation Series - From ‘Sangers to Sochan: Plant Gathering in the Southern Appalachian National Parks with Maria Dunlaveyhttps://northbranchnaturecenter.org/event/sangers-to-sochan/
Free | Live via ZOOM:
In the botanical wonderland of the Southern Appalachians, plant poaching is a very real threat. It’s also a reflection of how important plants are to the people who live here — providing food, medicine, and income, not to mention cultural connection and belonging, for everyone ranging from the Cherokee to white settlers to newly arrived immigrants. But overharvest threatens to wipe out some species, like ginseng and ramps, even on the protected landscapes of the national parks. How can the parks keep their plant populations safe? And is there any role for cultural harvest inside their boundaries?
