Within a very short period of time earlier this year, most of you know 
that the BSW lost two valued members, Peter Whitney and Larry Morse.

Here is a wonderful page of pictures that Martha Whitney put up in honor 
of her husband, Peter:



And Julie Moore just passed along this invitation to the rescheduled 
memorial for Larry Morse:

Friends –

NatureServe’s memorial event celebrating the life of

Dr. Larry E. Morse, former chief botanist at NatureServe, a legend in 
plant conservation, and expert on the flora of the United States, has been 
rescheduled due to inclement weather for:

Tuesday, November 27 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30p.m. at The Nature 
Conservancy’s Conference Room overlooking the Native Plant Garden 
(directions below)

Larry enjoyed a nearly 30-year career in plant conservation that included 
serving as the botanist for the Maryland Natural Heritage Program and led 
to roles as chief botanist at The Nature Conservancy and then NatureServe 
until his retirement in 2006. He was a walking encyclopedia of information 
about plant identification and conservation as well as the cultural uses, 
historical relevance, and ecological contributions of plants.

During this time, we will share stories and memories and explore how 
Larry’s influence lives on.

Please RSVP by November 16 to: danielle_sundstrom at natureserve.org
