      Please join Larry Morse’s family, friends, and co-workers at the memorial

      Because Larry was such a big part of the BSW and so many knew him
      throughout his career, we are hoping to have a few members speak about
      Larry at the memorial.  If you are interested in speaking, please contact

      Friends –
      We invite you to join NatureServe on

      Tuesday, October 30

      4:30-6:30pm

      at

      The Nature Conservancy’s Native Plant Garden

      (directions below)

       

      for a Time of Remembrance celebrating the life of Dr. Larry E. Morse, former
      chief botanist at NatureServe and a legend in plant conservation.

       
      Larry enjoyed a nearly 30-year career in plant conservation that included
      serving as the botanist for the MD Natural Heritage Program, leading to
      roles as the Chief Botanist at The Nature Conservancy and continuing with
      NatureServe until his retirement in 2006. He was a walking encyclopedia, not
      only of information about plant identification and conservation, but also of
      the cultural uses, historical relevance, and ecological contributions of
      plants.
       

      During this time, we will share stories and memories and learn about ways
      that Larry’s influence lives on.

       

      Please RSVP by October 23 to: danielle_sundstrom@...
