Georgia Native Plant Society (GNPS)

The GNPS is involved with neighborhood restoration projects that encourage training in aquatic invasive species identification, removal, and replanting with natives. Specific areas include Grant Park, Piedmont Park, and the Heritage Trail in Cobb County. The Society features at least one yearly lecture on invasive plants out of six general membership meetings a year. GNPS hosts a kiosk at the Southeastern Flower Show that includes an invasive species poster, and has the GA-EPPC invasive brochure prominently displayed and available to the public. GNPS mails the GA-EPPC invasive brochures to Master Gardener groups on request. The GNPS also has a small research grant program that funds invasive research along with other topics.
