Volunteers Needed! New England Wild Flower Society is currently seeking
Maine applicants for a plant conservation program called the Plant
Conservation Volunteer Program (PCV). The PCV Program puts the skills of
amateur botanists to work relocating and collecting data on populations
of rare plants throughout New England.  The information collected by the
PCV Program is given to the Maine Natural Areas Program to help redefine
the conservation status of plant species.  As a PCV, you will also be
able to go on field trips to botanically interesting natural areas, take
courses to further their botanical knowledge, and participate in habitat
management projects. This is an excellent opportunity to learn more
about the flora of New England and to meet adventurous people who share
your interests in plants and the natural world!

Qualifications.  We are looking for people who have some botanical
training, a commitment to conservation, good observation skills, a sense
of adventure, and a few spare days during the field season, from May to
October.  Volunteers will need to arrange their own transportation.

How To Apply. If you are interested in participating, please send us an
application, which can be downloaded from our website at www.newfs.org.
If you have any questions or would like to request an application via
email or regular mail, please contact:

Training Session. If you are accepted into the program, we will notify
you about a month prior to the training session, which will be held on
Sunday April 24, 2005.  The training session provides an overview of the
Program, instruction in how to conduct a rare plant survey, and a
presentation on the plant species to be surveyed.  All new volunteers
must attend this training session to participate in the program in 2005.
Thank you very much for your interest in the Plant Conservation
Volunteer program-we look forward to receiving your application!
