About the Center for Plant Conservation

CPC’s mission is to ensure stewardship of imperiled native plants. To do this, we implement the following tested and effective strategy: We advance science-based best practices in plant conservation through our network of conservation partners known as Participating Institutions. Our network actively applies these practices to save plants from extinction here in North America as part of the CPC National Collection of Endangered Plants. We share best practices with conservationists all over the world and advocate for plants and their value to humankind.
