Welcome to Arizona Native Plant Society

Our mission is to promote knowledge, appreciation, conservation, and
restoration of Arizona native plants and their habitats.


We want to help you select local plants that thrive in our natural habitat but are also  both beautiful and economical. This will result in plants that are easier to care for and better support our local ecosystem. Our Grow Native initiative is here to help show you the way!

Congratulations, John Scheuring

on receiving the Stewardship Award from BLM “for your outstanding work on the Ironwood Forest National Monument.”

“We are happy to recognize and thank you and the other Arizona Native Plant Society volunteers for your outstanding work on the Ironwood Forest National Monument, including the restoration of the airstrip in the Waterman Mountains and buffelgrass treatments on the Waterman Mountains, Ragged Top, Wolcott Peak, and the surrounding area. Your tremendous efforts have made a big difference and greatly improved public lands. We are grateful for your determination, even during a pandemic, as you continue your work with a small group of volunteers and BLM employees while following COVID-19 safety protocols.“
