Effective December 18, 2020: VPRS is no longer available for reporting.

Heritage Hub Coming January 2021!

VPRS will be relaunching in 2021 as the Heritage Hub!  This will be a total system overhaul not just updates to our existing platform.  In preparation for this transition we wanted to reach out to you regarding your reports in VPRS.  

Here’s what you need to know: 

  • There will be a link to the new system on our website (week of January 18, 2021) 

  • You will need to create a new account 

  • You will no longer have access to your reports in VPRS 

We are asking that if you have draft reports in VPRS please submit these reports by December 18, 2020 or plan to abandon them and restart in the new system in 2021.  The NHESP will continue to evaluate and process records submitted on or before December 18 but we will not have the ability to submit any reports after December 18, 2020.   

If you have not already reported, any requirements to submit data to NHESP (for collection permits, conservation and management permits, etc.) may be met by using the new system in January.  

Some of what to expect in the Heritage Hub: 

  • A new system interface 

  • Streamlined observation reporting 

  • Advanced map functionality 

  • Continued ability to bulk upload observations 

  • Enhanced copy report capabilities 

  • A Natural Community observation form
