Building Our Native Plant Community
$100 Donation per Year
The Joe-Pye membership level represents a commitment to the preservation and stewardship of our vital ecosystem. It is designed for individuals who have a deep passion for native plants, biodiversity, and a desire to actively contribute to the health and sustainability of our region.
Embracing the Joe-Pye Spirit
At the heart of the Joe-Pye membership is the magnificent Joe-Pye weed (Eutrochium spp.), a tall, robust native plant known for its stunning clusters of pink to mauve flowers. This plant is a testament to the resilience and adaptability of native species, as it can thrive in a variety of soil types and moisture levels, making it a keystone species in our local ecosystem.
Thriving Together: Native Plant Education
The proceeds from Joe-Pye memberships go directly towards furthering our native plant education initiatives. These initiatives include:
Educational Workshops: Members’ contributions enable us to organize webinars and in-person events that educate the community about the significance of native plants. From the ecological importance of native species to the pollinators that rely upon them, these events empower individuals to become stewards of their local environment.
Resource Creation: With the help of donations from our Joe-Pye supporters, we develop educational resources that are designed to empower both adults and children with knowledge about native plants, their benefits to pollinators, and how to incorporate them into their lives.
