North Carolina Plant Conservation Program

The Plant Conservation Program, established by the passage of the Plant Protection and Conservation Act in 1979, is responsible for the listing and protection of North Carolina's endangered plants and threatened plant species. 

The program:

  • maintains the list of Endangered, Threatened, and Special Concern plant species; 
  • enforces regulations and issues permits concerning state-listed plant species; 
  • carries out field projects in biology, monitoring and managing populations of listed species; 
  • provides educational materials to the public; 
  • and monitors trade in American ginseng.
