Through our members, volunteers and friends, we:
  • have exciting and knowledgeable speakers
  • offer interesting and varied field trips
  • organize great workshops
  • assist with special projects such as stewardship of endangered species, restoration of native plant habitats, native plant sales and more!
What are our goals?
The society was founded in 1997 and based on learning more about native plants and their habitats, sharing information, and making a commitment to the ethical use of native plants as well as their conservation and stewardship.

The society's objectives are to:
