South Carolina Native Plant Week, 2023

Posted on by SCNPS Website Team


Recap: October 16-20, 2023

Sparked by legislation drafted by Audubon South Carolina, the South Carolina Native Plant Week was first introduced as a resolution to the state legislature in 2017 and signed into law by Governor McMaster in April 2018.

This resolution recognized that “native plants are essential for healthy, diverse, and sustainable ecosystems,” and permanently established the third week of October as Native Plant Week in South Carolina.”

This year the big week… well, um. Didn’t see a lot of action. But we’re hoping to change that!

Send ideas to (for any part of the state, not just up here in nose-bleed land!), and we’ll see if we can’t get next year’s party started!
