Georgia Native Plant Society

The Redbud Chapter of Georgia Native Plant Society (GNPS) serves the north Georgia region with quarterly programs, presentations to community groups, native plant rescues, field trips, and workshops to promote the stewardship and conservation of Georgia’s native plants and their habitats through education and with the involvement of individuals and organizations.

Redbud Education Committee hosts speakers for four programs a year on in-depth aspects of native plants for environmental conservation from birds and bees to trees and native plants for beauty or culinary and medicinal use.  Programs are scheduled on Tuesday 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM of selected months at the Ecology Center of Linwood Nature Preserve with field trips relevant to program topic held intermittently. 

Conservation Committee evaluates properties sited for development for their suitability for plant rescues and to serve property owners and developers with environmental reports on their property.  All GNPS members are welcome to participate in plant rescues that are conducted by certified native plant facilitators.

All rescues are listed for registration on the main website of Georgia Native Plant Society. To be informed of programs, field trips, workshops, and rescues join online at the link below. Be sure to indicate Redbud Chapter on your membership.


Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.  Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
