As the only national organization dedicated to the conservation of imperiled native plants, the CPC plays a vital role in protecting our precious natural heritage. CPC supports on the ground conservation work with imperiled plants through its endowed species program, by building partnerships with governmental and nongovernmental organizations, and by facilitating information sharing among its network of botanic gardens and arboreta. The books and workshops led by CPC institutions are world-class and have helped inspire plant conservation work across the US.

California is blessed with a wide diversity of plants but regrettably many are being severely threatened. Because of the support and efforts of the CPC, these plants are now being recognized and a basis for funding conservation efforts have been mounted. Their sponsorship of individual plant species has focused attention on the plights of some of our most vulnerable ones, hopefully before it is too late. Beyond this direct support, I have been impressed by their national advocacy and educational efforts which will hopefully benefit conservation efforts generally.

Funding that made possible the collection of seed, propagation and the reintroduction of highly endangered local species.

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

Create a higher level of funding and support
