Yes, the American Public Gardens Association maintains the North American
Plant Collections Collaborative (NAPCC).

At this time it includes only public and botanic gardens in the program. I
periodically bring up inclusion other groups and maybe the time is ripe to
float that proposal again.

Pam Allenstein is the coordinator. They produce a number of workshops that
train volunteer reviewers on the procedures used to evaluate prospective
additions to the NAPCC.  Tony, have you been through one of those workshops?
 Has anyone else?

Jim Waddick, do you think this is something that PBS would be interested in

If so, I recommend PBS develop an draft plan among the North American
members with the time, interest and expertise to participate and then take
it to APGA. Currently I don't believe they have a strong representation of
geophytes. CBG is working on creating a national collection of Jonquil
Narcissus but off hand I can't recall any other geophyte collections within
