Overview:

Indiana Native Plant Society supports well-conceived grant projects that are in line with our mission:

  • To promote the appreciation, preservation, scientific study, and use of plants native to Indiana.
  • To teach people about their beauty, diversity, and importance to our environment.

Biodiversity Grants 

Biodiversity Grants are awarded in three categories:

  • Research
    • Projects that focus either on a native plant (propagation/habitat needs/life cycle/restoration), or on the control of an invasive plant that threatens native plants.  
  • Demonstration Garden
    • Projects that showcase the use of native plants in landscaping at any public site.
  • Land Management and Conservation
    • Projects that ecologically manage and/or restore natural areas (for instance, removing invasive plants from forests, planting prairie in the part of the state where prairie is native) or protect natural areas through acquisition.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.

Eligibility:

  • Grant funds are available only for sites that are open to the public.

Ineligibility:
