New England Wildflower Society Seeks Volunteers

January 11, 2013

The New England Wild Flower Society is actively seeking volunteers for its Plant Conservation Volunteer (PCV) Corps. Participants in this program collect data on the status of rare plant populations throughout New England and assist with invasive and habitat management projects. Over 600 volunteers have been trained to document the current status of rare plant populations and identify potential threats to them. In return, PCVs are offered field trips, classes, and opportunities to interact with professional botanists to learn more about challenging species and the ecology of various habitats.

The requirements are motivation, discretion, and a basic knowledge of native flora. It’s a great way to learn more about plants, meet others with similar interests, and make an impact in conservation.

Training sessions will be held on a weekend in March in all New England states. For more information and an application visit our website at [broken link] or contact:
