OUR STORY

Responding to an ever-increasing need for native and ecotypic plant materials,

The Southern Rockies Seed Network became established in 2014 as a regional collaborative partnership to develop native ecotypic plant material for ecological restoration and conservation projects. Our mission is, “To preserve the genetic integrity of our native flora through collaborative planning for plant materials development.”

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, our partners and collaborators include:

  • Restoration practitioners
  • Multi-level government entities
  • Non-profit organizations
  • Seed growers & distributors
  • Nurseries
  • Researchers, and many others

Anyone interested in improving our collective capacity to enhance the quality and quantity of native ecotypic plant material in the Southern Rockies Ecoregion and adjacent ecoregions within Colorado and Wyoming is welcome to join us.
