Treasure Valley Native Plant Network


The Treasure Valley Native Plant Network (NPN) is a partnership led by Golden Eagle Audubon Society along with numerous community partners, schools and universities.


The NPN works together to collect at local seed sources, germinate, propagate, and create banks of seedlings for habitat restoration, and plant those seedlings at parks and wildlife reserves around the Treasure Valley.


In 2017 the NPN grew, germinated, and planted 2,000 native plants in 7 conservation areas, including 4 Important Bird Area sites.


Volunteer work was provided by K-12 and college students and educators, local nurseries, conservation partners like Idaho Botanical Garden and Land Trust of the Treasure Valley and Golden Eagle Audubon Society.


In 2018, the NPN is slated to meet our goal of restoring natural areas and pollinator gardens with 10,000 native plants!

Get Involved!


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


Fortunately, growing and nurturing wildlife-friendly plants is easy! The Native Plant Network provides an opportunity for everyone to become a citizen conservationist. There are many ways you can contribute - small task or large.


You can be part of a team that is restoring bird habitat right in your community by connecting with the Native Plant Network. Email Sean Finn at sfinn@goldeneagleaudubon.org to get started!
