About the Chapters
Members of the Native Plant Society of Texas are encouraged to join and participate in our local chapters.
Local chapters across the state help promote the Native Plant Society of Texas mission while providing a social context which many members enjoy.
Each chapter chooses projects according to the interests of their members, and organizes local field trips, meetings, plant sales and other events.
Chapters enjoy the strengths and legal benefits of being one incorporated non-profit organization. Our state office handles common administrative work and is the center point for statewide programs.
We have chapters in many areas of the state.
Use the map below to get a general idea of where chapters are located.
Use the checkboxes in the upper right corner of the map to view the cities (Chapter pins), counties (counties served by a particular Chapter), or Ecoregions (Level 3 Ecoregions) where the Society has active chapters.
Chapters do not limit their membership to any particular city or county. Many members live outside the city or county that their chapter serves. Some members actually choose to join chapters not based on geography but because the meeting time is convenient to them or because it’s easier to get to. Members may join and participate in any chapters of their choice.
