Native Plant Project

A Non-Profit Organization
Committed to the Preservation and Propagation of Plantlife
Native to the
Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas

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


Due to the continued pandemic of the Covid 19 virus and the need for social distancing, there will be no public meetings of the Native Plant Project for Fall 2020 at the Valley Nature Center in Weslaco. The meetings will tentatively resume in January 2021. An announcement will be sent out prior to the next meeting. We look forward to meeting with our members and friends when it is safe to do so. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.

 Respectfully submitted,

Jann Miller

Vice President
