Busy, busy, busy...

Today is the 10th annual National Endangered Species Day!

Take a moment today and learn about the importance of protecting all of our wonderful native diversity but particularly endangered and threatened species and the habitats they rely upon. (a good place to check this out is the Fish and Wildlife Service's official National Endangered Species Day page). There are a lot of events scheduled this weekend across the country at parks, aquariums, zoos, schools, etc. To look up events near you, you can check the event locator at the Endangered Species Coalition.

Winged False Aster (Boltonia decurrens) [federally threatened]

Elephant's Foot (Elephantopus carolinianus) [endangered in PA]

To learn more about endangered species local to your area, you can look at the Fish and Wildlife Service's official list or visit the Center for Plant Conservation Center for Plant Conservation which is dedicated solely to preventing the extinction of U.S. native plants.
