Colorado Native Plant Society

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. Volunteers work on activities such as bioblitzes (identifying plants in a particular location) and native plant sales. CoNPS offers field trips/wildflower walks during the spring, summer, and fall, and workshops and chapter programs during the winter.

CoNPS is a statewide organization with chapters throughout the state: On the Eastern Slope, there are the Boulder Chapter, Metro Denver Chapter, Northern Chapter (Fort Collins/Greeley), and Southeast Chapter (Pueblo/Colorado Springs). On the Western Slope, are the Gore Range Chapter (Breckenridge) and Plateau Chapter (Grand Junction).
