About this funder:



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.


Would you like a little help getting your conservation or restoration project off the ground? Do you need matching funds for a grant or donation that requires that? Do you teach students about plant ecology, or have a botanical research study underway and need money for materials, transportation, or equipment? If you are engaged in a project that aligns with our mission, consider applying for a grant.
