Highlights from the Road
Looking Back on the First Year of the NatureServe Network Van Tour

This past spring, NatureServe kicked off the “NatureServe Network Van Tour”, an expedition highlighting how we sustain biodiversity through technology, collaborative science, and local expertise. Sean has been journeying across the US and Canada in a converted camper van, named the Van Humboldt in honor of naturalist and explorer Alexander von Humboldt.

For this special, end-of-year episode of Conservation Conversations, we’re kicking the Van Humboldt into reverse gear and hearing from several members of the NatureServe Natural Heritage Network who joined Sean for a stop along the Van Tour. Hear about recent field adventures in Alabama’s Conecuh National Forest, rare species in the Adirondack Mountains of New York, biodiversity restoration projects in Pennsylvania, and our special partnership with NatureServe Canada.

The Van Humboldt still has a lot more natural heritage to explore in 2022. We invite you to join the ride by checking out on our website and following NatureServe on social media. Thank you, and on behalf of NatureServe, have a very happy New Year.
