Conservation Projects and Programs: Our Approach
We offer a variety of on-the-ground conservation projects and encourage our members to participate. Some of these projects are designed and run solely by the Society, but in our latest brainstorming meeting in February of 2015, the conservation committee decided to partner with other agencies to offer joint conservation projects. Because there are so many organizations that offer excellent projects for volunteers, and because we do not have the staff to organize a variety of opportunities, we felt it made more sense to do conservation projects jointly with other organizations.
This year we are offering on-the-ground conservation projects to pull noxious weeds, revegetate alpine tundra, collect seeds of native plants for revegetation projects, conduct our annual BioBlitz, monitor research plots of rare plants, track plant phenology and steward the state's Natural Areas.

These projects are organized by the Conservation Committee.
