Members of the Washington Native Plant Society share a common interest in Washington's unique and diverse flora. The Society represents all levels of botanical knowledge, from professionals and experienced amateur botanists, to beginners just becoming curious about the beautiful plants and habitats of our state. For more than 25 years the Washington Native Plant Society has enjoyed educating itself and others about the value of plants native to the Evergreen State. Public outreach efforts such as the successful Native Plant Stewardship Program, the Ivy OUT Program and Growing Wild heighten the awareness of the value of native plant ecosystems and sustainable living. Conservation and advocacy make the Washington Native Plant Society the voice for native plants. The Society's greatest conservation work is on-the-ground and around the state where hundreds of Society members volunteer their time to restore habitats, strive for good conservation policies, conduct native plant inventories and monitor rare plant populations.
