The CNPS fills a vital role in conservation of native plants and landscapes in California. They are active in education, advocacy, research, publications, and volunteer efforts throughout the state. I have been extremely impressed by the professionalism of the staff and volunteer chapter members, as well as the feeling of all-inclusiveness and high standards to scientific inquiry that they maintain. I have been a member of other state native plant societies. CNPS is extremely active, especially in working to protect sensitive plants and habitats via education, legislation, and advocacy, including working with other advocacy groups. It is imperative to help fund their work to maintain a strong CNPS presence in the state.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
intelligent, welcoming and sharing, professional and knowledgeable, very involved and caring about native plants.
