The Gila Native Plant Society is committed to promoting education, research, and appreciation of the native flora of the Southwest; encouraging the preservation of rare and endangered plant species; and supporting the use of suitable native plants in landscaping. We hope that you will find our website a favorite resource to help you enjoy the beauty and value of the native flora here.
