NEW ENGLAND WILD FLOWER SOCIETY
April 20, 2011

I work as a Plant Conservation Volunteer (PCV). As a PCV, we help monitor rare plant populations, remove invasive species, and do botanical surveys. All these efforts are coordinated through the New England Wild Flower Society. The society works with groups from ME, CT, VT, MA, and RI. They work with state governments and other conservation organizations.

The society works diligently to conserve our native flora. It produces reports on rare species, monitors them, and provides management plans.

It's a great society. I highly recommend it.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Suffield, CT, by being able to see rare plants and environments in the area, in addition to contributing to their preservation.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Increase their visibility to town governments.
