The mission of the Native Plant Master Program is to educate the public about native plants in order to foster stewardship, sustainable landscaping and management of weeds that threaten native ecosystems.

The Native Plant Master® (NPM) program offers individual classes for you to enjoy wildflower hikes or other themed classes such as native grass identification, sketching, landscape design, etc. If you want to dive deeper or gain professional development, you can register for the Native Plant Master® Field Courses, an award winning, non-credit, educational program offered by various County Extension offices through the State’s land-grant institution, Colorado State University.
