If you enjoyed the webinar series offered by the Arkansas Native Plant Society in May, then you may be excited to find out that we will be continuing these webinars monthly for the remainder of the year, and hopefully beyond.
The first webinar in our monthly webinar series will be Glades of Arkansas with Brent Baker, scheduled for this Saturday, June 5th, 10-11am.
Program Description: In this webinar Brent will discuss what glades are, as well as the different types found in Arkansas and where they occur. He’ll also highlight glade plant species in general and discuss some species that are unique to certain types of glades.
Speaker Bio: Brent Baker is a botanist with the Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission, an agency of the Division of Arkansas Heritage within the Department of Parks, Heritage and Tourism, where he has worked for nearly twelve years to monitor and discover new populations of rare plants in the state and to conduct botanical inventories of the state’s System of Natural Areas and other ecologically significant lands. He is also the collections manager for the Commission’s Herbarium, a collection of preserved and labeled plant specimens for documentation, reference, and scientific study. Brent holds a bachelor’s degree in environmental science and a master’s degree in biology with an emphasis in botany, both from the University of Central Arkansas. He was a member of the Arkansas Vascular Flora Committee and was one of the editors of the Committee’s Atlas of the Vascular Plants of Arkansas, published in 2013. Brent is an eighteen-year member and former president of ANPS. In his free time, Brent enjoys native plant gardening and working on habitat restoration on his property outside of Dardanelle.
