The mission of the Arizona Native Plant Society is to promote knowledge, appreciation, conservation, and restoration of Arizona native plants and their habitats.

Conservation and Restoration Ongoing Projects

AZNPS volunteers have undertaken several long-term projects to find successful approaches to restoring native plant habitats that have been infested by invasive species and/or disturbed by machinery.

Buffelgrass, Fountain Grass, and Stinknet. 

All three are spreading through the Sonoran Desert and threatening our distinctive native Sonoran Desert plants.

Conservation Resources

The topic of conservation of native plants in Arizona has been reported in many AZNPS publications.  We invite you to view these special extracts from previous editions of The Plant Press Arizona and other resources.
