How did you hear about the PCV Program?
Why are you interested in volunteering in the PCV program? *
What applicable experience do you have (i.e. courses, field trips, field work, etc.)? *
How much New England native plant identification experience do you have? *
We welcome amateurs and those learning plant ID! However, we are unable to teach the basics at this time and ask that you have some (even if a little) plant ID skills (ex: going out with a wildflower guide and looking at plants). This volunteer position will be much more fulfilling with some plant ID skills, and we would recommend that if you do not have any seek out opportunities to learn before applying to this program. You can gain ID skills by taking courses with the Native Plant Trust, and then apply for a PCV position.
This volunteer position requires that you are able to use computers proficiently. Please check items below that apply to the skills you have with a computer. *
What other volunteer activities have you been or currently are involved in? *
What PCV activities are you interested in participating in during the season?
Check all that apply.
What states and regions are you able to work? *
Check all that apply. We generally assign new volunteers to their state of residence, but can offer surveys in other states as well.
How far are you able to travel for PCV work? A lot of plants we monitor are often far from the major population centers, so we ask that you are willing to travel for surveys.

What is your time availability? *
We will be requiring volunteers to complete one survey a year minimum. Please be as specific and realistic as you can. This can be a set number of days per month or season, or just a maximum you think you can contribute. Also, it's helpful to know if you are available weekdays, weekends, or both.
Please give us the name, address and phone number of at least one personal reference. *
