The Jack & Martha Carter Conservation Fund allows the Native Plant Society of New Mexico (NPSNM) to award conservation, restoration, research and educational grants and donations to individuals and organizations in support of NPSNM goals. Through this dedicated fund, we have the potential to make a difference in conserving vanishing habitat,  reducing basic threats to our flora, adding scientific knowledge, and imparting to our youth an understanding of and an appreciation for native plants. We invite you to become a part of this effort on behalf of New Mexico’s natural history and heritage.

Due to your generousity over the years, we have been able fund a wide variety of projects that support our goals. We also contribute yearly to the operations of five regional herbaria that curate and maintain the thousands of plant specimens that archive the botanical history of the Southwest.  Click here to see notable grants and reports of past years.
