The mission of the West GA Chapter of the Georgia Native Plant Society is to promote the stewardship and conservation of Georgia's native plants and their habitats through education and with the involvement of individuals and organizations.
Welcome to our website! We are West GA Chapter of the Georgia Native Plant Society, Inc., a non-profit organization supporting education about native flowers, trees, shrubs, vines and their role in supporting wildlife.
We are a group of native plant enthusiasts from the western counties of the southern piedmont who provide educational events on identifying and appreciating native plants. We promote the ethical use of native plants through links to nurseries who do not gather plants from the wild, our own plant propagation and in participation with the Rescue program conducted by the Georgia Native Plant Society of which we are a chapter.
We have varying activities that include participating in plant & seed exchanges between our members, field trips, guided walk & talks on local nature trails, garden tours, indoor presentations about native plants and outdoor group hikes and picnics. I hope that you will come to one of our public meetings and decide to become a member. You can check out the meetings and subjects on the Meetings & Activities Page.
If you are interested in membership please go to the Georgia Native Plant Society Membership page and be sure to select the West GA Chapter, in the dropdown, for participating in a regional chapter, under Preferences.
To contact me or to submit questions just send an e-mail to President@WGaWildflowers.org. Please add the topic of your email to the Subject line.
