The Midwest Native Plant Society is a non-profit organization of amateur and professional naturalists, botanists, teachers, researchers, gardeners, birders, photographers and others who share a deep appreciation for our native flora and fauna. Our mission is to promote awareness of the importance of native plants and the wildlife that depend on them, within biologically diverse ecosystems and in our own home landscapes.
In support of our mission, we host the Midwest Native Plant Conference, special workshops and field trips, and donate a percentage of proceeds to conservation projects and organizations that are working to preserve native plant communities. We offer scholarships and student internship opportunities. In just 7 years, we have been able to donate over $50,000 for various conservation organizations to help conserve critical habitat.
