The UNPP...

Collaboration & Partnership:

Building a Native Plant Materials Program in The Umpqua Basin

The Umpqua Native Plant Partnership was formed in spring 2021 and has grown to comprise 17 public and private agencies and organizations, as well as individuals involved in native plant materials development or restoration work. Ongoing efforts are made to recruit new members from a diverse set of individuals who engage with the landscape of the Umpqua Basin, including foresters, tribal members, educators, and business owners. The work of the UNPP benefits local ecosystems, enhancing diversity and resilience to ensure that these ecosystems endure into the future, providing inherent benefits as well as a variety of ecosystem services.


New reservation system to order native plant materials for the Fall 2024 planting season directly from Local Producers

The UNPP is currently funded by BLM, The Partners Program for USFWS and USFS, and is heavily supported by the Native Plant Society - Umpqua Chapter, Pheonix School, Local Native Plant Producers, and other community partners - THANK YOU!

At Umpqua Native Plant Partnership, we are dedicated to addressing the need for partners, landowners, and producers to have access to native plant materials, ecological restoration planning, and production support.
