Native Plant Appreciation Week is put on by the Native Plant Society of Oregon, which has been working tirelessly since 1961 for plant and habitat restoration. NPAW PDX is supported by the Portland chapter of NPSO, which works to protect and conserve threatened and endangered species, carrying out rare plant surveys and monitoring programs, developing guidelines and policy regarding native plant gardening, ethics, grazing, mining, and forest management, and working on plant salvage and re-introduction. The Chapter also sponsors field trips and work parties, involving members in conservation of Oregon’s diverse plant heritage.
