Wyoming Native Plant Society

The October newsletter is now available. You can read about a new sagebrush conservation tool that shows how important Wyoming’s intact sagebrush habitats are across the West. You can also check out how the Wyoming Native Plant Society is advocating to protect alpine plant communities through education along the Beartooth Highway. Lastly, if you or someone you know is interested in joining the board of WYNPS, now is the time to let us know! We’re accepting nominations.

Welcome to the Wyoming Native Plant Society (WYNPS). Our goals are to encourage the appreciation and conservation of the native flora and plant communities of Wyoming through education, research, communication, and field trips.

Membership is open to individuals, families, and organizations, including libraries, with an interest in Wyoming’s plant life. Activities include the annual summer field trip, other native plant walks around the state, and the occasional virtual events. Scholarships are awarded each year to¬†undergraduate or graduate students and other researchers conducting work in Wyoming.
