The Iowa Native Plant Society is a forum for plant enthusiasts, gardeners, and professional botanists to exchange ideas and information, and to work together to:
- encourage conservation and ethical use of Iowa's plants
- promote education about Iowa's plants, their habitats and cultural habits, and the preservation of these plants and their environment
- appreciate and enjoy Iowa's native flora
INPS organizes field trips and promotes other native plant events on our calendar. We post pictures from some of our field trips. You can learn more about what's happening in INPS by reading the latest newsletter. Check out our Books page for books recently authored by INPS members. Keep informed about native-plant-related topics by joining our email discussion group.
