Get Involved in Plant Conservation
Here are some things that you can do to support the conservation of rare and endangered plant species:
Plant native plant species grown from seed in your home garden.
Volunteer to work with rare plant monitoring or restoration efforts at your local botanical garden or conservation organization.
Practice good land stewardship on your own property.
Avoid planting invasive, non-native plants in your garden or yard, and assist with efforts to remove them from your neighborhood.
Help to teach your neighbors and friends about rare plants.
Document local plant species through photographs and illustrations.
Reduce your energy use.
