A.T. Natural Heritage Monitoring is a course that focuses on rare and threatened plant species along the Appalachian Trail. This course is part of a program of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy and the National Park Service to monitor and protect known rare and threatened plant populations.
This course helps you gain or brush up on the skills necessary to become an A.T. Natural Heritage Monitor volunteer. Monitors should be comfortable going off trail to search for their assigned plant population and have some confidence with identifying plants. Monitors will learn about, search for, find and survey their plant population one time during the season. This may require more than one trip if the population is difficult to find.
Pre-registration is required.
