Intermountain Native Plant Growers Association websiteINPGA is a registered nonprofit organization made up of a diverse group of wholesale and retail nurseries and landscape designers from throughout the region, as well as organizations and interested citizens. Our goal is to promote beautiful, sustainable, regionally appropriate landscaping that conserves water and other resources. Our organization got its start in Utah, but we are rapidly expanding our vision to foster a truly regional approach to landscaping in the Intermountain West. Our region presents some unique problems, but also incredible opportunity in the form of a treasure chest of native plant diversity. These plants are just waiting to be discovered, promoted, and appreciated in human as well as natural landscapes.

New Mexico Biodiversity Collections Consortium website: New Mexico is enormously rich in biodiversity and fortunate in that a history of that biodiversity is still available to scientists and the public in the form of collections housed in the state’s natural history museums. To protect those collections and to make the information stored in them available to the scientific community and the general public, NMBCC has integrated museum data at the University of New Mexico, New Mexico State University, Western New Mexico University, Eastern New Mexico University, and the New Mexico Museum of Natural History into a searchable geospatial format accessible via the Internet.
