Who We Are

The Botanical Club of Wisconsin, the state's only organization dedicated to the study of our native flora, was founded in 1968 by John Thomson as an affiliate of the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters. The BCW serves the interests of amateur and professional botanists toward the common goal of learning more about our state's plant biodiversity.
