GNPS promotes the stewardship and conservation of Georgia’s native plants and their habitats through education and with the involvement of individuals and organizations.
Many plant retailers tend to grow mostly exotics, hybrids and named cultivars that may or may not provide the food and nesting sources our native pollinators need to thrive. Furthermore, most of those plants are treated with pesticides, many of which harm pollinators. Instead, support these local native plant growers.
MAG works together with teachers, students, families, communities, businesses and others to study monarchs and restore butterfly habitat across the state. Its mission is to inspire caretakers of the natural environment through monarch and pollinator education..
