The Chapter Tool Chest is a collection of resources specifically selected to be useful for Native Plant Society of Texas chapters. Each resource is an idea or activity that has been found beneficial, or is an example of best practices for managing a chapter. If you have questions about a specific resource contact the author or the Vice President Chapter Liaison. Feedback about the Chapter Tool Chest is welcome, especially requests for additional resources you would like to see.

The Chapter Tool Chest is organized into documents arranged in four categories:

  • Manage  – Step by step guidance on starting a chapter, growing membership, publicizing chapter activities, and sustaining the chapter through leadership development.
  • Educate – Guidance on landscaping and gardening, conservation and preservation of native plants and habitats.
  • Advocate – How to instructions and ideas for external education, outreach, and advocacy activities.
  • Admin – Administrative tools, guidelines and a template for use in creating new tools.
