Boulder County looking for volunteer plant monitors

Happy Earth Day everyone!

Our friends at Boulder County Parks and Open Space are looking for volunteer plant and invasive species monitors. Volunteers will get to visit some of Boulder County's most scenic properties while collecting ongoing scientific data in the field.

Plant monitors will identify and record plants within predetermined locations in June, July, and September to evaluate the success of seeding projects. Invasive species monitors will identify and map the location of weeds from May to September to determine areas of management concern and success.

The schedule is flexible as long as you commit to volunteering 12-16 hours per month. Knowledge of local flora (native and exotic) is preferred. Natural Resource Monitors must be at least 18 years old. Application deadline is April 29th (next Friday). For more information and an application, contact Michelle Bowie at 303-678-6219 or
