WVNPS supports a variety of programs, including:
- Field trips to learn about plants in their natural habitats.
- Activities that promote the preservation and enhancement of West Virginia's wild plant communities.
- Programs to educate the public about native plants and their threats.
- Documentation of native flora, especially rare and endangered species.
- A periodic newsletter.
