The Long Island Native Plant Initiative (LINPI) is an all-volunteer cooperative effort of over 30 non-profit organizations, governmental agencies, nursery professionals, and citizens.  The mission of this organization is to protect the genetic integrity and heritage of Long Island native plant populations and thus biodiversity from a landscape to genetic level, by establishing commercial sources of genetically appropriate local (ecotypic) plant materials for use in nursery, landscaping, and habitat restoration activities.


The 2015 Long Island Native Plant Symposium is coming up on Saturday, October 24th, at FarmingdaleState College. This year's event will be hosted by the Department of Urban Horticulture and Design at FSC. For more information about our 3rd Long Island Native Plant  Symposium, click here.
