The Idaho Native Plant Society 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. We seek to foster an understanding and appreciation of our native flora and to preserve this rich heritage for future generations.

April is Native Plant Appreciation Month!

We encourage you to enjoy our native flora in whatever way you choose— by attending a presentation, going for a walk or hike, getting natives to plant in your yard, becoming involved in conservation in your community, or supporting others who are attending college or pursuing a career in botany or a related field.
