HI RIck. I think I sent a note to you to incorrect e-mail address. Thanks again for all the work on the spring meeting. 

See you in July?

 *The Herbert J. Esther M. Atkinson Conservation Fellowship *


 New England Wild Flower Society, the oldest native plant conservation
organization in the United States, is a leader in regional plant
conservation activities. The New England Plant Conservation Program (NEPCoP)
and the Plant Conservation Volunteer (PCV) Corps program engage professional
and citizen volunteers in rare species monitoring, habitat management,
invasive species monitoring and control initiatives, reintroduction and
augmentation projects, and long-term conservation planning. The innovative
and award-winning NEPCoP and PCV programs work closely with the natural
heritage program of each New England state as well as other conservation
organizations. The 2008 Fellows will be integral to these programs in a
variety of ways, from coordinating volunteers and entering data to
conducting botanical surveys, management projects, and other field actions.


 *Description:*

The Fellow will assist in all aspects of administering the conservation
programs of the Wild Flower Society, including conducting training programs,
retrieving data from the heritage programs, obtaining landowner permission
for rare plant surveys, sending out volunteer assignments, and entering
data. Additionally, the Fellow will assist in the planning and
implementation of restoration and management activities, invasive species
initiatives, general floristic surveys and PCV field trips to botanically
interesting locations throughout the region. The Wild Flower Society employs
two fellows each year.


 *Skills:*

Candidates should have some familiarity with the flora of New England and
ecological processes, excellent speaking and writing skills, good phone
skills, a willingness to call landowners, and a sense of humor. Fellows must
respect and maintain the confidentiality of rare species locations.
Additionally some long days in difficult situations (hot, buggy, and wet)
are required.


 *Bottomline:*

Fellowship is full-time, four month position.

*Starting date:* flexible, as early as May 1st, but no later than June 1st.

*Stipend:* $240.00/week and housing is provided


 *To Apply*:
