THE GOALS of the Montana Native Plant Society are to preserve, conserve, and study the native plants and plant communities of Montana, and to educate the public about the values of our native flora.

 The Montana Native Plant Society (MNPS) is a non-profit organization chartered in 1987. Today we have over 600 members. Membership is open to individuals, families, and organizations within and outside Montana. Members may affiliate themselves with local chapters or join as Eastern or Western At-Large members (see Chapters and Areas in menu above).

 ACTIVITIES are conducted at the local chapter and state levels. The MNPS addresses plant related issues across Montana through committees for Conservation, and Landscaping/Revegetation

 KELSEYA, the MNPS newsletter, is published four times a year and is included with your membership. Kelseya contains timely articles about Montana plants and their communities, listings of chapter and state meetings and field trips, and updates on native plant issues.

 An ANNUAL MEETING of the MNPS brings together members from throughout the state to some of the most beautiful places in Montana to learn and socialize through field trips, workshops, and other programs.

 If you have questions about activities in your area, or seek information about plants or resources in your area, please contact the chapter closest to you (click on Chapters Drop Down Menu at the top of this page): Calypso (Dillon, Butte, Southwest Montana; Clark Fork, (Missoula, West Central Montana); Kelsey (greater Helena area); Flathead (Northwest Montana, Glacier Park); Maka Flora (Eastern Montana); Valley of Flowers (greater Bozeman area).
