Eleven plants native to Washington State are listed under the Endangered Species Act. Can you name them? Wendy Gibble will introduce you to these eleven Endangered and Threatened species and the habitats that they rely on. She will also discuss efforts currently being undertaken to protect and restore them as well as an overview of the Washington Rare Plant Care and Conservation (Rare Care) program.

Wendy Gibble is the Manager of Conservation and Education at the University of Washington Botanic Gardens. In her 11 years with the program, she has conducted research on rare plant ecology, overseen the seed banking program, and propagated rare plants for outplantings. She completed her master’s thesis in plant ecology at the University of Washington.
