Removal of native plants from the wild is rarely a good idea as the entire community may be affected. Always vette your sources for native plants to insure sustainable collection practices are in place.

The purpose of the Delaware Valley Fern & Wildflower Society shall be to encourage the enjoyment of native Ferns and Wildflowers by cultivating and propagating them in the home and garden; by studying them in their wild habitats, gardens and conservatories; by promoting their conservation and preservation; and by providing a forum for the exchange of information and expertise.


Membership in the DVFWS is open to anyone who is interested in native ferns and wildflowers and is willing to support the society. Two general membership meetings are held each year and many field trips are scheduled each weekend to areas rich in botanical interest. Membership is available for individuals or for a household for one year or three years. For additional information contact any of the officers.
