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.

All programs are free and open to the public. The Gila chapter conducts field trips on the third Sunday of each month from April to September. Each field trip will be to a different location in order to explore the diversity of our native plants. Field trips are free and open to the public. Meet at 8:00 am in the south parking lot of the WNMU Fine Arts Center Theatre for carpooling.
