Consortium Kick-off Meetings – United States Region

May 2020


5 August 2020




The Morton Arboretum and BGCI hosted a very productive kick-off meeting for the U.S. Region of the Global Conservation Consortium for Oak (GCCO). Over 60 people from across the U.S. (and five other countries) attended the two-day virtual conference on May 28th and 29th, 2020. Invited speakers provided important context for the state of oak conservation in the U.S., and sub-regional group discussions sparked many ideas for new research and conservation projects.
