We are proud to announce that Native Plant Trust is among the first 21 organizations chosen to participate in a year-long program with the IDEA Center for Public Gardens to understand and incorporate best practices in inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility into their public gardens and institutional structures. The IDEA Center is an initiative of the American Public Gardens Association with support from Denver Botanic Gardens and the Institute for Museum and Library Services.
