Welcome to the South Carolina Native Plant Society!

The South Carolina Native Plant Society is a non-profit organization committed to the preservation and protection of native plant communities in South Carolina. We work to make this happen by providing programs and activities  including field trips, plant rescues, native plant sales, monthly educational lectures and educational journals designed to:

  • Educate and inform members and the general public about the importance of native plants
  • Support efforts by government agencies to protect habitats and endangered species
  • Encourage the use of native plant materials in public and private landscaping
  • Promote the commercial availability of native plant materials

Join us to enjoy and learn more about native plant and to help more people come to understand and appreciate the vital role native plant species play in the health and sustainability of our natural ecosystem!

Save the Date! Mark your calendars for upcoming statewide events this fall.

Registration is now open for the 2019 SCNPS Annual Meeting that will be held at Audubon South Carolina’s 3,400 acre Audubon Silver Bluff Preserve in Aiken County on Saturday, November 2, 2019. It will be a great opportunity to get together on this stunning property that overlooks the Savannah River.  This one-day event will include speakers, lunch, and an afternoon field trip on the property. We will also be holding Board Elections. To learn more about the property visit Audubon’s website.
