Plants of the Pine Barrens

by Marilyn Sobel, Research Scientist, NJ Pinelands Commission

Originally presented by the Southeast Chapter, March 15 2021 

Marilyn will discuss the ecology of some rare and endangered plants of the Pine Barrens, including orchids, carnivorous plants, and locally-limited plants such as Knieskern’s beaked rush. The talk will include potential threats to local populations and general habitat characteristics that are important elements of plant conservation. She will be adding some special touches of interest for gardeners as well.
