CRITIC OF GOVERNOR REASSIGNED State Environmental Services administrator Dori Wiggin of Rye, recently reassigned to work in Concord from her work as head of the Portsmouth field office, is hiring a lawyer to appeal her transfer. Wiggin was involved in complaints against Governor Craig Benson in recent years for having sand moved in front of his Rye beachfront home without a permit, causing Benson to be fined $2,000. Benson spokesman Wendell Packard said Wiggin's reassignment had "nothing to do with the governor or his personal properties." - Clare Kittredge

VOLUNTEERS SOUGHT FOR PLANT STUDY The New England Wild Flower Society and several partners want to recruit volunteers to help collect data about invasive plants in the Great Bay region. The data will go into the Invasive Plant Atlas of New England, a web- based inventory of the distribution and abundance of invasive plants in the region. The society's local partners are the Nature Conservancy and the Great Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve. The society is creating the atlas with the University of Connecticut and the Sylvio O. Conte National Wildlife Refuge. The Wild Flower Society will host free training for volunteers from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. May 1 at the Brown Center off Dame Road in Durham. Preregistration required. Contact the New England Wild Flower Society's Chris Mattrick at 508-877-7630 or e-mail cmattrick@newfs.org. - Clare Kittredge
