Agenda - Tuesday June 15
9 am - 9:15 am Introductions & Announcements 9:15 am - 9:35 John Carpenter - Bird Atlas
The NC Bird Atlas is a statewide community science project to map birds during the breeding and wintering seasons. We support participation by a diversity of humans for the diversity of birds. Through this effort, we can gather essential information about the current and future distribution and abundance of NC’s birds and prevent listing species as endangered or even becoming extinct. 9:40 am - 10:00 Julie Moore - Venus Flytrap Champions
Carolina landowners, particularly those with substantial populations of Venus flytraps, can play a significant role in maintaining the few remaining natural populations if they know what the species needs and have the resources to manage the distinctive, species rich savanna habitat. Venus Flytrap Champions is a cooperative effort by agencies and organizations designed to recognize and assist private landowners in both North and South Carolina to actively manage habitat on their properties. Exceptional managers of flytrap populations on public land will also be recognized.
