Bergen-Passaic Chapter

Welcome to the Bergen-Passaic County Chapter of the Native Plant Society of NJ. 

Our chapter was established in 2013. We are a passionate group of native plant people who love to learn and support our ecosystem. 

Together, we are working to increase public awareness about the vital role of native plants in supporting a healthy ecosystem and sustaining wildlife habitats. We hope to promote the use of natives in Passaic and Bergen County home and public landscapes. 

We enjoy touring native gardens and local parks, attending educational workshops and presentations and volunteering. 

If you are interested in volunteering, have an idea, or question you can reach us at .

Sign up for our newsletter to receive email notifications of upcoming events.

Thank You, 

Elaine, Joanne, Melissa, and Tom
