Connecting People, Plants, and Land

At the North Carolina Native Plant Society, we connect people, plants, and land through our focus on native plants. We value our members and encourage you to find a chapter and join. Members get special opportunities, for example native plant swaps, sale events, and seed shares at local chapter meetings. Find chapter events and more at Learn how you can make a difference.
