Botanist for the Rhode Island Natural History Survey and founder of Rhody Native™, Hope Leeson will present ways gardeners can increase diversity of restored plant communities by planting native plants grown from seed, and make strong connections to the landscapes they create.
As a botanist with nearly 30 years of field experience in southern New England, Hope Leeson's feet and eyes have traveled over most of the state of Rhode Island. Her many years of determining where the edge of a wetland lies, searching forests for rare and unusual plants, mapping locations where invasive plants have become established, and consulting with landowners on habitat management, have contributed to her intimate knowledge of Rhode Island's natural areas and plant communities.
