The Native Plant Society of New Jersey is a statewide non-profit organization dedicated to the appreciation, protection, and study of the native flora of New Jersey. Founded in 1985, we have hundreds of members across the state, and are organized into county and regional chapters. Our members include gardeners, horticulturists, naturalists, landscape designers, students, and native plant enthusiasts from all walks of life.
EcoBenefial works to change how we think about & manage our landscapes. With natural areas rapidly diminishing, species declining at historic rates, & climate change dealing new blows to environmental health, our managed landscapes have never been more important. Simple changes in our landscaping practices can make major environmental improvements - no matter the size of the landscape.
