Welcome to our New Website

Welcome to our new FNPS website.

Check out the plants.  We've updated the way the pages link together and given you some improved search capabilities, especially for locations.  We are still doing some updates, but we hope you like where this is heading.

Check out the What We Do sections.  Juliet has been adding text and projects that you will want to know about.

All of your favorites are still here.  The menu is deliberately very similar.  The news, blog, and any action alerts are in the menu under "news"

Check out the Join/Support tab.  FNPS has two new "stores" where you can buy FNPS items including t-shirts, a mask, plant posters, and artwork.

If something breaks or has wrong information, please let us know.  We broke the old salt ftolerance field under plants into a salt water inundation and a salty spray field -- we would appreciate your personal observatons and we know we likely have some accidents here.  Let us know.

If you have problems, let us know.
