The Washington Native Plant Society advocates for ecological management practices and policies that conserve native plants and native plant habitats on public and private lands in Washington.
The mission of WNPS is to promote the appreciation and conservation of Washington's native plants and their habitats through study, education, and advocacy. Advocacy includes, but is not limited to, endorsements, statements, research, and intervention activities that support the protection of native plant diversity, native habitats, and associated ecosystem services.

Whether it has been about the damming of the Skagit River, creating the Alpine Lakes
Wilderness Area, or studying the aftermath of Mt. St. Helens, the Washington Native Plant
Society works to protect and monitor the vitality of this state’s native plant ecosystems.
Our 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
