Poachers Stealing Native Succulents 
Tuesday, September 24, 2019 07:00pm
Contact (408) 867-6126

You’ve read about it in the paper and this talk will explain the recent rash of thefts of native succulents, (Dudleya sp.), from the wild and what can be done about it. National and international media and law enforcement have been in contact with the speaker about the topic. In some ways, the last couple of years have been a bit like CSI: Native Succulents! The speaker will also display several Dudleya species and describe how to grow them in our area.

Stephen McCabe has been on the board of the Santa Cruz Chapter of CNPS for over 30 years, where he has helped protect habitat and rare species. He also worked at the UC Santa Cruz Arboretum for 30 years, where he is Emeritus Director of Research and is currently a researcher with the Environmental Studies Department. When not scrambling to see “duds” in the wild, he can sometimes be found scaling granite cliffs in the Sierra.
