The Center for Plant Conservation (CPC) is a national not-for-profit organization in the United States consisting of a network of 36 botanical institutions, with the mission to conserve and restore the rare native plants of the United States.

CPC is coordinated by a national office and guided by a volunteer board of trustees and the experts of the CPC Science Advisory Council. By developing standards and protocols and conducting conservation programs in horticulture, research, restoration, and raising awareness, CPC’s network is striving to save America’s rarest plants from being lost forever.
