We are a non-profit organization run by volunteers serving all of Longview and surrounding counties. The Northeast Chapter's mission is to promote research, conservation, and utilization of native plants and plant habitats of Texas, through education, outreach, and example. We hold monthly meetings that are open to the public that feature a variety of guest speakers that are passionate about native plants and related topics.

In addition, our chapter also hosts plant sales, maintain a garden that features native plants at the Longview Arboretum, and hosts other educational and outreach activities that support our mission throughout the year. Check our calendar for upcoming events and follow us on Facebook!
