THE STORY:

New England Wild Flower is trying to save rare and endangered plants—and we can all help! The Society has a “seed ark” campaign to collect and permanently store seeds from the 387 species of plants that are rare throughout the region, including 62 species that are globally rare and 10 species that occur nowhere else in the world.

Life on earth, the air we breathe, and the entire food chain depend on plants, and yet across the country, nearly a quarter of plants are on the brink of being lost. Plants face numerous threats, and the rare plants in New England are challenged by everything from development to invasive species to climate change. The region has already lost 5 percent of its native plants; help save the 17 percent that are just hanging on.

Help New England Wild Flower Society save the plants and the planet! The Society is trying to preserve seeds from at least 2,000 populations of the region’s imperiled plants. It takes on average $2,500 to preserve one population of a single species. Help this great organization raise the $250,000 needed to save 100 populations, and help it meet a $500,000 challenge grant.

Please donate for Giving Tuesday this year.
