DONATIONS

Donations are given to non-profit organizations to support on-going work that meets the objectives and goals of the Native Plant Society. For example, the NPSNM gives annual donations to the four main herbaria in the region: University of Texas at El Paso; University of New Mexico; Western New Mexico University; Fort Lewis College; and New Mexico State University. The University of New Mexico (UNM) Herbarium applies that money towards its goals of georeferencing (mapping) the specimen label information, with the expertise of New Mexico Natural Heritage (NMNH) to make the information available to the scientific community and the general public.
