Native plants are the foundation of our ecosystems
We are on a mission to save the native plants and natural habitats that make the West Kootenay unique. KNPS connects people, plants, and place through science, education and restoration.
Native Plants Need Our Help
Habitat destruction and climate change threaten the plants that make the West Kootenay special.
Pollinator conservation = native plant conservation
Native plants and pollinators need each other. They have co-evolved and adapted to our local environment.
Conserve natural habitats with native plants
Preserving native plant habitat in wild areas is essential to support a full range of biodiversity.
Connect with native plants in your yard
Restoring nature, protecting pollinators, nurturing wildlife—these can all be done by you when you garden with native plants.
