Imagine a world where plants never go extinct. At the Center for Plant Conservation we do more than imagine. We work to make this a reality.

Join our team to create this reality.

Founded in 1984, the Center for Plant Conservation (CPC) is a consortium of more than 60 botanical gardens and conservation partners in the United States that are dedicated to safeguarding imperiled native plants from extinction. Our scientists represent the world’s best practitioners engaged in active plant research and conservation. Collectively our Participating Institutions house more than one-third of the 4,400 globally rare plant species in North America in seed banks and garden collections.

Each year, The Garden Club of America (GCA) and the CPC together award the Catherine H. Beattie Fellowship to graduate students in biology, horticulture, or a related field. The purpose of the award is “to promote conservation of rare and endangered flora in the United States, with preference given to students whose projects focus on the endangered flora of the Carolinas and southeastern United States.” The fellowship was established to honor Catherine H. Beattie who served as a director and board member of the GCA and served as president from 1981 to 1983. The first fellowship was given by the Fullerton Foundation in 1983.
