A Non-Profit Organization

Mission Statement

The Native Plant Project's primary objective is the compilation and dissemination of information about plants native to the lower Rio Grande Valley.  The NPP seeks to increase scientific knowledge of native plant propagation and phenology for both horticultural and natural revegetation purposes.  The NPP promotes the conservation of local native plants, habitats, plant communities, wildlife, and environment.  The NPP seeks to increase the public's knowledge and awareness of the importance of native plants in the lower Rio Grande Valley by encouraging their use in public and private landscapings


Our next meeting will be Tuesday September 27, 2022 at 6:30 PM at the Valley Nature Center in Weslaco followed by a program at 7:30 PM. The presenter will be John Brush who is the Urban Ecologist at Quinta Mazatlan World Birding Center in McAllen. John will be speaking about how our RGV native plants provide habitat for our native birds and other animals. This promises to be an interesting and meaningful program. Hope to see you all there.

Respectfully Submitted,

Jann Miller
