NANPS was founded in 1985 by a small group of dedicated conservationists as the Canadian Wildflower Society. As our American membership grew and acknowledging that plants don’t recognize political boundaries, we changed our name to the North American Native Plant Society in 1999. In 1985 we founded North America’s foremost native plant magazine: Wildflower. The original magazine ceased publication in 2005, but it’s name lives on under the editorship.
NANPS currently owns two conservation properties: Shining Tree Woods in the Carolinian zone of southern Ontario and Zinkan Cove on the west shore of the Bruce Peninsula on Lake Huron. Both properties offer unique gifts and distinct challenges. Maintaining conservation lands is a prodigious responsibility but the rewards are equally great. While relatively small, NANPS properties are home to a number of rare flora and fauna and we are justifiably proud of our efforts to protect them.
