Get Involved!

Here are the ways you can get involved with the National Vegetation Classification. Many of these opportunities are in partnership with the Ecological Society of America (ESA), a key partner in the classification effort.  At the state level, opportunities exist through involvement with key state partners, working in collaboration with NatureServe and its network of natural heritage programs.  At the federal level, opportunities exist through involvement with key agency partners, including USFS, USGS, BLM, NPS and others.
