The Kentucky Native Plant Society was founded in 1986 for everyone interested in the native plants and wildflowers of Kentucky Plants are essential to both the well-being of our Commonwealth's natural ecosystems and our enjoyment of its unique environment. With members in Kentucky and neighboring states, the Kentucky Native Plant Society is a leader in promoting education about, appreciation for, and conservation of our native flora.

Our mission is to promote education, preservation, and protection of Kentucky native plants and ecological systems.
