Stefan WeberGuest Speaker: Stefan Weber
Topic: Adventures in Seed Conservation 

Interested in learning more about native plant conservation / restoration projects? If so, you are in for a treat, as Stefan Weber has much to share. 

Stefan Weber is a plant ecologist with Carolinian Canada, and is a PhD candidate at McMaster University. Stefan has a keen interest in native plants and seeds, with more than fifteen years of experience working in horticulture and field botany. He has collected and propagated more than 300 native species from local seeds during his time working with the St. Williams Nursery and Ecology Centre and as co-director of the Ontario Plant Restoration Alliance, an NGO dedicated to native seed conservation. And, yes, if you have attended the Toronto Botanical Garden's annual plant sale, you will likely recognize Mr. Weber, who has been a prominent figure at the event these last few years.

Our members who attended the February General Meeting will recall that Mr. Weber was scheduled to speak that evening. Unfortunately, a personal emergency prevented his participation. However, he has welcomed the opportunity to present at our virtual meeting in July. Society members will be provided with instructions for participation prior to the event.
