State Natural Heritage Programs
Wild Flower Society state partnerships
The Society has formed partnerships with all six Natural Heritage Programs in New England. These Programs work in each state to preserve native biological diversity through inventory, research, environmental review, habitat protection, and data management.
Heritage Programs maintain valuable databases used to track, assess, and provide information on biological diversity.
Through cooperative agreements, the Heritage Programs share their data with the Society. New England Plant Conservation Program Task Force Members and the Plant Conservation Volunteers update records by visiting known populations of rare plants, performing botanical inventories of natural areas, and sometimes discovering previously undocumented populations in the process!
