​Pennsylvania Plant Conservation Network (PPCN)

The Pennsylvania Plant Conservation Network (PPCN) is a program that leverages statewide partnerships to coordinate on-the-ground stewardship efforts for native rare, threatened, and endangered plants.

The network's mission is to safeguard these species through a variety of conservation practices.

Are you researching or promoting stewardship of native plants listed as rare, threatened, or endangered in PA? If so, please reach out! We want to hear about your work and help facilitate its application to plant conservation.

If you are interested in learning more about these species or want to help PPCN achieve research goals, please view DCNR's Wild Resource Conservation Program grant program, the only state funding source for plant conservation and research. 

If your research is funded through the program, you'll collaborate with us to complete research with applied conservation implications.
