Rooted in Success: The Center for Plant Conservation's Website Transformation


The Center for Plant Conservation (CPC) is a unique network that brings together plant conservationists to safeguard endangered plants across the United States, its territories, and Canada. However, their outdated website posed significant challenges. It needed proper organization, modern features, and user-friendly tools for content management. To effectively serve their mission and connect with supporters, CPC needed a complete website overhaul.
