Wyoming Native Plant Society

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.

Join us in Laramie for the 2021 WYNPS Annual Meeting, June 25-27! We are planning to move forward with the meeting with necessary COVID-19 precautions in place. More information about the meeting is available here.

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.
