CLC’s very own GIS Director Sean Bloom has been invited to join the North Carolina Rare Plant Conservation Alliance!
The North Carolina Rare Plant Conservation Alliance is a year-old initiative dedicated to researching and preserving important habitats for rare plants throughout North Carolina. Members of the alliance include individuals from local, state and federal government agencies and conservation organizations. Sean, who has an environmental science degree from Catawba College, will provide expertise and is currently the only member on the alliance representing a land trust.
“It is an honor and a privilege to join to this group,” said Sean. “I look forward to working with other organizations and community groups to bring attention to the importance of conserving land so that several of our state’s rare and threatened plants can flourish.”
Sean is responsible for all of the mapping needs for CLC and The Thread, and supports conservation planning and stewardship. Before joining CLC, he worked as a staff scientist with the environmental consulting firm Hart and Hickman. The alliance meets bi-annually at various locations across the state.
