The Intown Atlanta Chapter of the Georgia Native Plant Society
The Intown Atlanta Chapter of the Georgia Native Plant Society has over 300 affiliated GNPS members.
Part of our mission is supporting GNPS Restoration sites in our area. Each of these sites below is linked to its page on the site, and you can see scheduled workdays on the events calendar:
Soon to be added to our list is Herbert Taylor Park / Daniel Johnson Nature Preserve (HTDJ) – https://www.facebook.com/HerbertTaylorPark. Currently, restoration work takes place on the 2nd Saturday of the month from 9-12, but watch for the park to get its own restoration site page soon.
You can reach us by email.

Chapter News & Events
Members of the Intown Atlanta Chapter, as well as anyone thinking about affiliating with the new chapter, are encouraged to attend their first annual meeting this Sunday, November 7, from 1-3 p.m. The agenda includes adoption of the chapter bylaws and voting on the board of directors. More information is on the GNPS Calendar.
The Intown Atlanta startup committee has met multiple times since June. Most of the required steps for full approval as a chapter of GNPS have been completed. We expect to be incorporated in the next month or so, which will be the final step before being eligible for full chapter status. We understand that many local members are excited about having activities, and currently we hope to have some events in the fall. Meanwhile, we encourage all members in the area to affiliate with the existing or forming chapter that best serves their needs. In particular, if you live inside the perimeter of Atlanta, you should consider the Intown Chapter or the North Metro Chapter. Affiliating with a chapter will ensure that you get notices about upcoming events. GNPS members are always welcome at the activities of other chapters, aside from voting on chapter matters, so there is no way that you can join the wrong chapter.
If you are in the Intown Atlanta area and are interested in joining a new GNPS chapter, please register to join us for a virtual Intown Atlanta chapter interest meeting on Tuesday, May 25, 2021, at7:00 PM. Once you register you will receive the instructions for joining the event.
What we’ll be focusing on during the meeting:
- Meeting other chapter area members
- Reviewing the chapter quick start guide
- Choosing the startup committee
- Discussing the name of the chapter
- Discussing potential meeting locations
- and more!
We look forward to “seeing” you there!
