Native Plant Masters   arrow

Teller County Native Plant Masters

The mission of the Native Plant Master Program is to educate the public about native plants in order to foster stewardship, sustainable landscaping, and management of weeds that threaten native ecosystems.  The Native Plant Master Program is a fun way to spend time in the field this summer, getting to know the plants of the central mountains of Colorado.

As a Native Plant Master you’ll be able to incorporate native plants into your home landscape to save water and avoid pollution from fertilizers and other chemicals. You’ll learn about  local native plants in the field, and discover plant relationships with animals that pollinate, consume, and nest in them. And, you’ll learn more about native plants than you ever thought possible: how they grow, how to identify them, and why the natural world could not exist without them.

Keeping ahead of COVID-19

This rapidly evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) has imposed an unsettling, fluid situation upon our community and its businesses. While the team here still aims to maintain a “business as usual” approach, we have moved to working from home and conducting training using Zoom and YouTube and other social media sites that is far from normal.
