  • Guidelines for Collecting Native Plants -The Montana Native Plant Society discourages the digging of native plants. However in some cases, collecting native plants may be justified. These guidelines were developed to help those wishing to collect native plant materials do so without damaging our native plant populations and communities.
  • Creating Native Landscapes  This is a comprehensive guide developed by the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service Bridger Plant Materials Center. The last page of the PDF document includes information for ordering free paper copies.
