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.  The complete WNPS Conservation Statement guides WNPS conservation across actions and activities.  Click here to review:  WNPS Conservation Statement

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

The Conservation Committee
 
WNPS Conservation Grants
The WNPS Conservation Committee is soliciting proposals for Conservation Grants of up to $1500 that further the goals of conservation of Washington native plants.
 
Advocacy - Reports, Statements, Letters and Distribution
WNPS promotes conservation activities that result in informative research papers about native plants and their ecosystems.  It also conducts advocacy that includes science based statements and comment letters regarding relevant statewide and local issues of concern.
