Texas Native Seeds Program (TNS)
Texas Native Seeds (TNS) is a non-profit research and development program that works to enable native plant restoration across Texas. Our focal areas include developing commercially available, locally adapted native seed sources for all areas of Texas, conducting applied restoration research to develop practical restoration methods, and disseminating findings and conducting educational activities in support of the restoration and conservation of native plant communities. TNS is structured as a network of 6 collaborative regional projects to serve the diverse ecoregions and restoration needs of the state.
