Southern California Conservation Issues

Nick Jensen


Monday February 5, 2018

7:30 pm – 9:30pm

Join us at our monthly membership meeting with the new California Native Plant Society’s Southern California Conservation Analyst, Nick Jensen.  Nick will give us an introduction and overview of the different conservation issues we face in our region and how we can work together to make a difference.

Nick started his full time position with CNPS at the beggining of the new year and has already been digging into a myriad of issues, initiatives and projects and will be working closely with CNPS chapters and conservation partners in the southland.  Nick has been part of CNPS of many years.  After graduating from UC-Davis, Nick worked in the CNPS Vegetation Program. He transitioned to our Rare Plant Program where for several years he was the CNPS Rare Plant Botanist, and then Rare Plant Program Director before leaving to pursue graduate studies in California’s native flora, with a focus on the incomparable Tejon Ranch. Last month, Nick completed his PhD program at the Claremont Graduate University and now, takes over as CNPS Conservation Program’s lead staff person in Southern California.
