Apply for Membership in the BSN Network

BSN MemberApply to join the BSN network of over 90 Botanical Sanctuaries across the country.

The mission of United Plant Savers is to preserve, conserve and restore native medicinal plants and their habitats of the USA and Canada, while ensuring their abundant, renewable supply for future generations. To this end, United Plant Savers established one of our most important projects: the Botanical Sanctuary Network. As we became more deeply involved in the complexities of medicinal plant conservation, we realized that one must first preserve and protect the habitat in which our native plant communities thrive. What better way than to create a network of sanctuaries dedicated to restoring and preserving habitat for wildlife, both plants and animals.
