Do you have a volunteer-based invasive plant management program in the mid-Atlantic region? If so, please register it! If you oversee a group of volunteers who conduct invasive plant removals in DC, DE, MD, NJ, PA, VA, or WV, please take a minute to add your group to the Invasive Plant Volunteers Directory.
To register, click here to complete a short survey.
Why bother? Because understanding the number and distribution of volunteer groups in our area will help to:
  • Recognize the significance of volunteer efforts in restoring invaded lands
  • Identify areas in need of volunteer assistance
  • Help connect interested volunteers with a suitable group
  • Build a stronger network of invasive plant workers in the region
  • Build support for potential funding of volunteer-based programs
The directory will eventually be posted to the Mid-Atlantic Invasive Plant Council (MAIPC) website.
