We want to hear about your native plant project and what make it special…to discover what wonderful and interesting things you are doing that support native plant habitats in small gardens or large restoration projects across the continent. To share and celebrate these efforts, NANPS has created the Native Plant Garden Award.
NANPS is looking to celebrate a member’s project that best reflect NANPS’s mandate to study, conserve, cultivate and restore North America’s native flora.
