Kentucky Native Plant Society

The Kentucky Native Plant Society was founded in 1986 for everyone interested in the native plants and wildflowers of Kentucky. Plants are essential to both the well-being of our Commonwealth's natural ecosystems and our enjoyment of its unique environment. With members throughout Kentucky as well as other states, the Kentucky Native Plant Society is a leader in promoting education about, appreciation for, and conservation of our native flora.

Our Goals are:

-To serve as the Kentucky native plant education resource
-To support native plant research
-To support efforts to identify and protect endangered, threatened, and rare native plant species
-To promote appreciation of the biodiversity of native plant ecosystems
-To encourage the appropriate use of native plants
