Why vote for an official

New York City wildflower?

3 Ways to Help

WildflowerNYC is a campaign to restore the connection between New Yorkers and our wild flora - one vote at a time.

Given global extinctions and the climate crisis, nearby nature has never been more vital. Our well-being and local wildlife depend on indigenous plants, yet in the wild they are largely unprotected and overlooked.

Let's raise awareness and make wildflowers a meaningful part of the Big Apple narrative. Together, we can do this! Here's how:

After the election, we'll let to NYC Council know that New Yorkers are asking for legislation to make the winning wildflower official.

Love wildflowers as much as we do? Tell us why!

Share your thoughts, poems, photos, drawings, short videos & stories with us and we'll add it to our upcoming "Community Wall" page on this site!

In some Native languages, the term for 'plants' translates
to 'those who take care of us'.
