About CALIFORNIA NATIVE PLANT SOCIETY
2707 K ST STE 1, SACRAMENTO, CA 95816, US
The California Native Plant Society (CNPS) is a statewide non-profit organization of amateurs and professionals. Our goals are to increase understanding of California’s native flora and to preserve this rich natural heritage for future generations. The Yerba Buena Chapter encompasses San Francisco and northern San Mateo Counties and is named for the tiny fragrant mint Satureja douglasii found in this area. Chapter Activities are as diverse as our membership and range from conservation and habitat restoration to native plant gardening and photography.
Since its beginnings, the California Native Plant Society has been a leading voice in plant science and native plant appreciation, making it one of the foremost native plant organizations in the world. We are a 501(c) 3 non-profit dedicated to conserving California native plants and their natural habitats, while increasing the understanding, enjoyment, and horticultural use of native plants. We work closely with decision-makers, scientists, and local planners to advocate for well-informed and environmental friendly policies, regulations, and land management practices.
We accomplished our mission through education, plant science, advocacy, land stewardship and native plant gardening.
