Today, I finished creating a PowerPoint presentation of the Torreya Guardians project to re-wild the Florida Torreya via assisted migration for preventing the extinction of the species in the wild. I’ll post the presentation to my Flickr site after review by other Torreya Guardians.
The project germinates Torreya taxifolia seeds and raises the seedlings until they can be given to volunteers who will plant the trees on their own lands. I created the presentation help introduce gardeners, landscapers, and naturalists, among others, to the values of this tree. Connie said I would be getting twenty more seeds this winter, so I hope to use the presentation to find new volunteers next spring and summer.
