The mission of the Tennessee Plant Conservation Alliance is to promote and coordinate the cooperative conservation of our rare plant species and natural communities to ensure no local extinctions. 


Our vision for the Tennessee Plant Conservation Alliance is to serve as a coalition of organizations and individuals dedicated to promoting and conserving Tennessee’s abundant botanical diversity. We initiate and coordinate cooperative conservation activities with the intent to halt or reverse declines in rare plant species, restore natural communities, and reduce plant blindness via education and outreach.  We improve the effectiveness of native plant conservation in Tennessee and increase the public’s understanding and appreciation of native plants and natural communities.
