The New York Flora Association was founded in 1990 with the goal of promoting field botany and a greater understanding of the plants that grow wild in New York State. The goals of the organization are:

  • to promote the study of New York State's Flora;
  • to encourage the production of botanical publications that are educational to the public and beneficial to the scientific community;
  • to provide an umbrella organization for field and herbarium botanists that can represent their points of view;
  • to serve as an information exchange for botanically related organizations and botanists active in New York State;
  • to foster the pursuit of common interests;
  • to support the continued development of the New York Flora Atlas; and
  • to promote conservation of native plants and natural communities.
