Why Visit Native Plants?
Because it’s fun! It’s the adventure of searching for intact native plant communities in the wild. It’s the excitement of spotting a plant you’ve never seen and noticing characteristics that might help you identify it. It’s poring through photos and books to narrow the search. It’s the eureka moment when you’ve nailed down an identity, and the pleasure of documenting your find.
We invite you to experience the joy of discovering native plants through INPAWS hikes and field trips, where you’ll be guided by experts who know where to look and can introduce you to the fine points.
You’ll learn a lot about native plants, immerse yourself in nature, and enjoy the company of other INPAWS members, both expert and novice.
