Plant Conservation Program

The Mission of the Plant Conservation Program is to conserve the native plant species of North Carolina in their natural habitats, now and for future generations.



To accomplish its mission, the North Carolina Plant Conservation Program (PCP) develops regulations, voluntary programs, and cooperative partnerships to help protect imperiled species and their habitats. PCP's responsibilities include the listing of North Carolina's endangered and threatened plant species and the development of conservation programs designed to permanently protect these species.

PCP employs a host of methods and procedures to perpetuate native plants and their ecosystems, including the acquisition and management of important plant sites and habitats.


Our Year-in-Review Documents give highlights of our recent accomplishments in meeting our mission.
