A unified voice promoting native grasslands vegetation.
Membership in the Alliance is open to any group, organization, or agency that supports and advocates for the increased use of native grasslands vegetation on public and private lands. Individual member organizations will maintain their own primary area of interest and messaging, but work collectively to expand the awareness, acceptance, and adoption of native grasslands vegetation. The NGA will coordinate opt-in opportunities for members on issues and positions. Please complete the form below for affiliate request.
In lieu of a LISTSERV, join the Native Grasslands Alliance Microsoft Teams group to keep up with developments with NGA, get involved in a working group, share documents and connect with other members.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to add you to our Team, and share with me what working group(s) to include you for specific details (Policy, Technical Education, Research, or Awareness).

The Research Working Group will review existing science and highlight important research findings to support the other working groups. In addition they will identify gaps in knowledge and work to encourage research in those areas and when possible assist in coordinating research with funding opportunities.
The Technical Education Working Group will provide information to educate and inform technical advisors and landowners to ensure they have science based information for planning and decision making. The Technical Education Working Group will also develop a strategy for increasing and expanding education efforts and creating opportunities for implementation of training.
The Policy Working Group will identify state and federal policy impediments and develop strategies to address these obstacles, working with state and federal agencies and lawmakers to create and implement native grasslands vegetation-friendly policies. This group will provide guidance to Alliance members on messaging and when, where and how to get engaged.
The Awareness Working Group will work to expand overall awareness of the value of native grasslands vegetation for improving and maintaining water quality, soil health, soil conservation, carbon sequestration, pollinator and wildlife habitat, forage, recreation and spiritual health.
