What we’re about

This is a group for anyone interested in supporting the Washington Native Plant Society (WNPS).  Our mission is to promote the appreciation and conservation of Washington's native plants and their habitats through study, education and advocacy. 

The Central Puget Sound Chapter (CPS) hosts regular monthly membership meetings 7 times a year in Seattle and 4 times a year in Bellevue. Following a brief business discussion and announcements, each meeting features a guest speaker who is an expert on a native plant topic such as native plants found on WA hikes, the impact of climate change and wildfires on native plants, and landscaping with native plants.  The Seattle meetings also have a plant identification workshop prior to the start of the meeting. 

The CPS Chapter also sponsors a Native Plant Steward training program, which provides 100 hours of free instruction on native plants and environmental stewardship in exchange for a commitment of 100 hours of volunteer work. The organization also has 2 native plant sales a year, where you can find both common and rare species of plants.
