Up s at-risk_presentation

  1. 2. Stewardship: <ul><li>the conducting, supervising, or managing of something; especially : the careful and responsible management of something entrusted to one's care -Merriam-Webster dictionary </li></ul><ul><li>UpS recognizes that environmentally responsible cultivation, land stewardship, habitat protection and sustainable wild-harvesting are of critical importance to ensure an abundant renewable supply of medicinal plants for future generations. </li></ul>
  2. 3. United Plant Savers Statement of Purpose For the benefit of plant communities, wild animals, harvesters, farmers, consumers, manufacturers, retailers and practitioners we offer this list of native medicinal plants which we feel are most sensitive to the impact of human activities. Our intent is to assure the increasing abundance of the medicinal plants which are presently in decline due to expanding popularity and shrinking habitat and range. UpS is not asking for a moratorium on the use of these plants. Rather, we are initiating programs designed to conserve and cultivate these important native medicinal plants.
