This online training course was developed to provide an individually paced learning platform, and also a way to review all of the protocols and information while you are completing your rare plant survey assignments. If you are a new volunteer you will NEED to complete the course before you attend your first training session. We will know if you did not! It is vital that you have an understanding of why we do what we do, and the protocols of how to successfully complete a rare plant monitoring assignment. If you are a returning volunteer, welcome, and hopefully this will be a good review for you.
