Native Plant Masters

Would you like to learn more about the beautiful plants that grow in nature? Take a Native Plant Master® class or course and get to know the beautiful plants of Colorado.

Learn: Discover native plants in their natural habitats through an outdoor class from the award-winning Native Plant Master program. Indoor classes are offered on a wide range of plant-related topics such as wildflowers, native plant landscaping and invasive weeds. Classes are offered in multiple counties across Colorado.

Earn: You can earn a Colorado Flora Certificate by taking three Native Plant Master multi-session courses and there is no volunteer requirement. This is a great option for those who would like to receive a certificate but who do not want to become a Native Plant Master volunteer. Relicensure credit of .5 graduate-level credit is also available for teachers and others for some courses.

Volunteer: Take your knowledge to the next level and become a certified Native Plant Master volunteer. As a NPM volunteer, your role is to educate others at your current job or volunteer position. Anyone can take NPM courses or classes, but teaching is one of the best ways to cement your knowledge. Plus, you will help to magnify the impact of the program by bringing research-based information about plants to new audiences.
