Description

 

This workshop brings together the community of practice working actively to recover the Santa Cruz Sunflower (Holocarpha macradenia).  The last such workshop was in 2003, and this workshop will focus on information since then. 

 

Managers of sites supporting the species will present any population data (spatial distribution, population numbers, and flower head production) and management information (type, timing, intensity, duration of disturbance regimes, etc).  Agency personnel will present recovery goals and agency actions.  Researchers will present the results of studies. 

 

If you are the manager of, or work with, a population of this species, we hope you will prepare a brief write up and 5-minute presentation to describe population and corollary management trends of the species at your site.  We hope to discuss this information and place your write up and presentation on our website so that others can learn from your experience.

 

Goal

 

Improve the connections between, and the knowledge of, the community of practice in order to help recover Holocarpha macradenia, Santa Cruz tarplant.

 

Objectives

 

·       Improve participant understanding of…

 

o   Population trends

o   Management trends

o   Correlations between management and population trends

o   Recent research on the species

o   Overall vision/recovery goals for recovery of Santa Cruz tarplant

 

Registration

 

The event is free of charge.  We will be providing only light snacks and coffee in the morning- bring your own lunch, please.

 

We do not allow third party registration- register only yourself!  Registration is email sensitive; registering others frequently results in cancellation, missed communication, and other issues.

 

If you think we should invite someone – please let us know. 

 

We also do not allow registration 'trading,' even to persons within the same organization. 

 

Please let us know as soon as you know if you have registered and cannot attend as we use substantial funds to subsidize workshop expenses, helping to make them more affordable. We do not want to waste that funding.
