THE NEW ENGLAND WILD FLOWER SOCIETY is the oldest plant conservation organization in the United States, promoting the conservation of temperate North American plants through five key programs:
Thousands of people of all ages and interests learn about native plants
through courses, school programs, teacher training, tours, conferences
and field trips at sites throughout New England. The Society publishes
booklets and bulletins about cultivation and propagation of native plants.
Horticulture: The Society owns and operates the Garden in the Woods as its botanical garden and headquarters. This 45-acre garden is a unique living museum displaying the largest landscaped collection of wildflowers, ferns, shrubs and trees in the Northeast.
Research: The Society develops economically feasible native plant propagation techniques for the nursery industry and researches propagation and seed banking of rare and endangered species.
Preservation: The Society owns and manages seven sanctuaries in New
England, protecting rare species as well as examples of New England habitats.
In the wild, we monitor the survival of hundreds of rare plants and provide
habitat management advice and information.
Conservation Advocacy: The Society administers the New England Plant Conservation Program (NEPCoP), an alliance of more than 60 private organizations and public agencies working to prevent the extinction and promote the recovery of the region's endangered plants.
Special Edition of New England Wild Flower, the 32-page "Conservation
Notes of the New England Wild Flower Society," with more than 50 full-color
photographs of New England's rare and endangered native plants and their
habitats, is now available in limited quantities for $4 (includes s/h)
