The Native Plant Study Group (NPSG) is dedicated to learning about BC native plants as wild populations and in garden settings, and supporting the conservation and their habitats.

After its inception as a study group of the Victoria Horticultural Society (VHS) over a decade and a half ago, members voted to become independent and to focus on the protection, conservation and education about BC's habitats. NPSG became a member of the BC Council of Garden Clubs in December 2014.


The group is guided by a volunteer steering committee. Members are encouraged to volunteer for this committee. Participation in outside events, by the group, or by individual members using the NPSG name, is dependent on approval of the steering committee or, where indicated, by the at-large membership. Activities requiring funding must receive approval from the steering committee.
