Native Plant Resource Center
Outside the Hiawatha National Forestís St. Ignace information center As part of the Upper Peninsula Native Plant Restoration Project, we work to restore native plant diversity and increase locally native plant genotypes throughout the Upper Peninsula.

Our goal is to create public awareness about the importance of using locally native plant species, and to encourage their use in landscaping and gardening.

This grant was funded by the US Environmental Protection Agency - Great Lakes National Program Office adminsitered by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.
