Review for New England Wild Flower Society, Framingham, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

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.

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

Increase their visibility to town governments.

Would you volunteer for this group again?


For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?

A lot

Did the organization use your time wisely?

Quite well

Would you recommend this group to a friend?


Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

It's certainly increased my botanical knowledge, and moved me from the garden into the field.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

I love seeing unusual and rare plants, and the environments they inhabit.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Volunteer & I monitor rare plant populations and submit reports for inclusion in the society's database.
