Welcome to the website of the Idaho Native Plant Society. The Idaho Native Plant Society (INPS) is a statewide non-profit organization dedicated to promoting interest in native plants and plant communities, and collecting and sharing information on all phases of the botany of native plants in Idaho. The Society seeks to foster an understanding and appreciation of our native flora and to preserve this rich heritage for future generations. In keeping with our mission, it is the intent of the INPS to educate its membership and the public about current conservation issues that affect Idaho’s native flora and habitats. Membership is open to anyone interested in our native flora. Read more here.
