Why Go Native?

The use of native plants offers many benefits over conventional landscapes.  Native plants are adapted to local environmental conditions such as soils, nutrient levels, precipitation amounts and patterns, and temperatures.  This characteristic translates to decreased water use, lack of need for fertilizers or artificial inputs, increased ability to withstand drought and heat or cold temperatures, and minimal maintenance requirements.

In addition, the use of native plants in created landscapes creates a sense of place – a sense of connection with the natural environment often lacking in conventional landscape design.  Part of that connection comes from developing habitat for other living things such as native pollinators, birds, or wildlife.  By creating a welcoming space for all things, we provide an opportunity for natural processes to be restored or regenerated and improve the health of humans and everything we depend on for our well-being. 

 


Our mission is the conservation of native plant communities throughout the west. We accomplish this through the restoration of disturbed areas, promotion of native plant landscapes, and responsible management of existing natural areas.
