Volunteering with the Society
Share time, energy, and expertise in support of the Society's conservation mission.
New England Wild Flower Society offers volunteers a variety of opportunities across New England. You can help support the Society's native plant conservation mission. Volunteers monitor invasive plants, search out rare species with the Plant Conservation Corps, lead tours at Garden in the Woods, lend a hand with horticultural projects, and help with administrative tasks at Society headquarters.
