Northern Arizona Native Seed Alliance (NANSA)

Vision Statement
Our aim is to support native Northern Arizona landscapes that are diverse and sustainable. We are dedicated to producing abundant and affordable quantities of genetically diverse and ecologically appropriate native seed.  We envision all land managers being able to use this seed for restoration, conservation, and vegetation projects. 

Mission Statement
The Northern Arizona Native Seed Alliance is comprised of individuals, government agencies, non-profit organizations and commercial businesses. We support the availability of genetically diverse native plant materials for restoration and conservation.   Through collaboration and outreach we: 1) research and develop native plants and propagation and distribution methods for Northern Arizona landscapes; 2) examine ways to produce and collect an appropriate and affordable product; and 3) to educate land managers and the general public on the importance of native plants.
