Our Mission

Our mission is to promote the enjoyment and conservation of North Carolina's native plants and their habitats through education, protection, propagation, and advocacy.

How we accomplish this mission!

We rescue native plants from encroaching construction. We applaud people who create native plant habitats.

We provide a listing service to speakers, making native plant related presentations available to the public. We sponsor various programs for both the community and college students, supporting research and stewardship activities which promote native plants.

We write letters to key officials stating our position on certain important issues, making those drafts available for the start of your own correspondence.

We gather for field trips, plant & seed exchanges & auctions, picnics, and other events. Outings are also organized locally throughout the state by our chapters.

We promote responsible landscaping practices. We grow native plants. We buy nursery propagated plant material and leave the wild plants in the wild. We conserve and protect native plants and natural area habitats. We avoid invasive exotic plants.
