The article focuses on the conservation of coastal goldenrod at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in North Carolina. The coastal goldenrod is one of the endangered species of flowering plants. Around 22 acres of Camp Lejeune base is occupied by the coastal goldenrod. Conservation areas are proposed to protect other species of concern in addition to the protection of coastal goldenrod. For the Species-at-Risk Program in 2003, the goldenrod was one of the four U.S. Department of Defense's pilot species. To discover more goldenrod habitat in the vicinity of the base, the Legacy Species-at-Risk Management Program is funding the North Carolina Heritage Program.
