Peggy Olwell leads the Bureau of Land Management's Plant Conservation Program, which covers the interagency Native Plant Materials Development Program, including Seeds of Success and BLM rare plants.
Peggy also coordinates the only national program on native seed collection and native plant materials development conducted on an eco-regional basis. There are over 500 partners from Federal, State, and local government agencies, private sector companies as well as non-profit organizations working on various aspects of this program. The Great Basin Native Plant Selection and Increase Project is one of several eco-regional projects funded through the BLM Plant Conservation Program.
