Plant NOVA Natives encourages residents as well as public and commercial entities to install native plants as the first step toward creating wildlife habitat and functioning ecosystems on their own properties. Lots of volunteers are needed!
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help with any of the following positions:
More people to help put their red Virginia Native stickers on plants at conventional nurseries. A very fun way to learn about plants!
For their upcoming five year native tree campaign:
—Put on a launch event in September or October– Can you arrange a tree-related events (plantings, talks, walks, giveaways, etc.) during that period? They would like to advertise multiple events all over Northern Virginia.
—Help with the legwork for their launch period – They need someone to correspond with potential event organizers and put it all onto a calendar.
—App creator– Can you create a very simple app to pair with the My Trees Count website? They will be asking people to record their tree plantings (in fact people can record them now) on the state website and would like an app to make it more mobile friendly.
—Social media volunteers – They need one or two people to take the lead on regular postings on various social media sites.
—Someone to send press releases – They need an ongoing “press office” to collect contact info for all the local media outlets then send them occasional press releases, starting with our launch month.
