Overview:

The Native Plant Society of New Mexico is a non-profit organization that strives to educate the public about native plants by promoting knowledge of plant identification, ecology, and uses; fostering plant conservation and the preservation of natural habitats; supporting botanical research; and encouraging the appropriate use of native plants to conserve water, land, and wildlife.

Donations 

Donations are given to non-profit organizations to support on-going work that meets the objectives and goals of the Native Plant Society. For example, the NPSNM gives annual donations to the five academic herbaria in the region: University of Texas at El Paso; University of New Mexico; Western New Mexico University; San Juan College; and New Mexico State University. The University of New Mexico (UNM) Herbarium applies that money towards its goals of georeferencing (mapping) the specimen label information, with the expertise of New Mexico Natural Heritage (NMNH) to make the information available to the scientific community and the general public.

Applicants receiving a donation are required to submit a report to the Society along with a short article (limited to 1000 words) for the NPSNM Newsletter describing how the funds were used within the structure of their organization.
