AT Endangered Plant Monitor
The Trail Conference is supporting the Appalachian Trail Conservancy and National Park Service in monitoring endangered plants along the AT, and we have an opening for a volunteer to be a part of this Natural Heritage Monitoring program in 2016
Each volunteer is assigned to check on a single species in a specific location and will probably only need to make one visit per year.
- Volunteers should have good plant ID skills and preferably some background with plants (landscape designer, master gardener, botany training, etc.).
- You need to be able to hike at least 4 miles, possibly over steep and uneven ground, to and from your monitoring location.
- You need to be comfortable going off-trail to look for your assigned species.
To apply, email Linda at [email protected]. Please include a brief description of your background and experience with plant identification.
