About Us

Founded in 1976, the Colorado Native Plant Society (CoNPS) is dedicated to furthering the knowledge, appreciation and conservation of native plants and habitats of Colorado through education, stewardship and advocacy.

Membership is open to all plant enthusiasts with an interest in our native plants and ecosystems. The Society welcomes beginners as well as experts.

The Colorado Native Plant Society educates members and the public about native plants and plant communities through a variety of activities. The Society cooperates with private and public organizations to promote conservation of native plants and the responsible use of native plants for horticulture and restoration.
