Welcome to Folsom Native Plant Society
We are the Native Plant Society of St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana.

Our Next Meeting:

1:00 p.m.

At Archbishop Hannan High School, on the corner of Hwy. 1077 and Bootlegger Road, Covington, LA.

Driving Directions: Check your newsletter for directions.

New Members are always welcome. The April meeting will be a plant swap. Native tree seedlings will also be available for new and returning members.

Have you checked out the new FNPS Facebook page? If not, you are in for a surprise. We have posted many native plant photos and links. Members can also post photos and comments. If you need help identifying a plant, then post a picture on FNPS Facebook and we'll do our best to help.


Our Study Focus is Reseeding/Multiplying Flowering Native Perenials, Pollinator Attracting Natives and Sustainable Gardening.

For questions or directions email us at fnpsinfo@aol.com or yborde@aol.com.

Consult our on-line list of seasonal blooms in the Education section for a list of spring blooming native plants with links to pictures of each.

Be sure to check out the page, the FNPS Projects and People, to find out more about the good works that we do to help preserve and protect the native flora and the land and water of St. Tammany Parish.

For information about landscaping with native plants check out our page about Creating Native Plant Gardens and also our Gardening with Native Plants feature on the Education page. You'll find advice from FNPS experts about how to grow, propagate and landscape with plants native to Louisiana.

Our Purpose:
The purpose of our group is to protect, perpetuate, and propagate the abundant native plants of St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana, and adjacent areas, focusing primarily on our native wildflowers, which are fast disappearing; and to discourage pollution of our water and ground so basic to their survival.
