CNPS was instrumental in getting me to a nearly water free front yard. After taking out over 1000 sq feet of grass, they helped me to learn about the new, Native plants I should be growing.

CNPS provides the support I need to grow my landscaping business with native plants of California, many of which are endangered. The public has shown increasing support to landscaping with the incredible diversity of species native to California, and the results are spectacular. It is a revolution of how we manage the land, and I see great future for the society. Their field trips have inspired me and connected me with valuable networks in the profession I am passionate about. They are very active with their members and I appreciate their workshops and outreach efforts.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

More carpool opportunities for field trips.

CA Native Plant Society's plant sales and educational events are helping a lot of Californians including myself learn about and plant California native plants. Great way to save water and money as a homeowner. Great for the environment and native birds of California! Their work helps to counter the the effects of the disappearing landscape brought on by development.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Have more plants sales and demonstration gardens.
