Michael J. DeMotta will detail some of the rare Hawaiian plant conservation projects that he has been involved with on Kauai over the past few years. He will discuss new techniques that NTBG has employed as part of their conservation horticulture initiative and the many ways NTBG supports rare plant conservation within the organization.
