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

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 and the biennial Wyoming Plant Conference. Scholarships are awarded each year to undergraduate, or graduate students conducting research in Wyoming.
