Treasure Valley Native Plant Network

The Treasure Valley Native Plant Network (NPN) is a partnership led by Golden Eagle Audubon Society in collaboration with numerous community partners, schools and universities with the aim to restore quality habitat for birds and other wildlife. The NPN works together to collect, germinate, propagate, and create banks of locally-adapted seedlings for planting in restoration sites around the Treasure Valley.

The Native Plant Network is truly community conservation in action. Loss of habitat is the most persistent threat to birds and other wildlife. The plant species that Idaho birds are adapted to are declining and being replaced by weeds and other low-value ground cover.


Since 2017, NPN has brought together thousands of volunteers to help restore quality habitat by growing and planting over 15,000 locally-adapted and resilient plants across southwest Idaho.





Current Restoration Projects

In 2019 the NPN grew, germinated, and planted 4,400 native plants in 12 conservation areas, including 8 Important Bird Area sites.


Volunteer work was provided by K-12 classrooms, educators, local nurseries, and community groups, totaling at least 19 partnering organizations. Over 550 volunteers came together this year to help restore quality habitat for birds and other wildlife and to make a lasting impact on our community.
