Plant Materials Centers

Map of Plant Materials Centers and service areas locationsPlant Materials Centers (PMCs) based in ecologically distinct service areas, work with Plant Materials Specialists to seek out and test plants and plant technologies that restore and sustain healthy natural ecosystems; conserve and enhance critical wildlife habitat; mitigate diverse environmental and natural resource concerns; provide economic and socially acceptable solutions; and support a safer human environment.  PMCs evaluate plants for conservation traits and make these materials available to commercial growers who provide plant materials to the public.  Centers also develop innovative techniques for land managers to use in managing a variety of conservation plants.
