Volunteers will learn about California native gardening while
gazing out at the Pacific Ocean at the Point Vicente Interpretive
Center. The garden provides important habitat for endangered
species and inspires people to plant local. The volunteer
maintenance of the garden is critical to it's success.
Volunteers will be pruning, weeding, watering, spreading or
collecting native seeds, planting, and mulching the oceanside
garden. Volunteers receive training on proper garden techniques
that they can use at home and enjoy an enriching educational
experience in a beautiful oceanside setting.

Mission Statement

The mission of the California Native Plant Society is to increase understanding and appreciation of California's native plants and to conserve them and their natural habitats through education, science, advocacy, horticulture and land stewardship

Description

The native plants of California are unlike any other in the world. From the richly colored expanse of spring wildflowers in the desert to groves of Monterey cypress on the coast, California 's wild gardens are immensely diverse and awe-inspiring in their beauty. They define the landscape and offer Californians a sense of place, pride and stability.

The California Native Plant Society (CNPS) works to protect California's native plant heritage and preserve it for future generations. Our work continues at a most critical time. Urban and agricultural growth, the spread of nonnative weeds, expanding knowledge regarding sustainable timber and grazing practices, and frequently inadequate land use planning all elevate the essential need to prevent the decline in California's native plant diversity.

To reverse this trend, CNPS promotes sound plant science as the backbone of effective natural areas protection. We work closely with decision-makers, scientists, and local planners to advocate for well-informed and environmental friendly policies, regulations, and land management practices.

CNPS is a non-profit organization largely run by volunteers. Our nearly 10,000 members work to promote native plant appreciation, research, and conservation through 33 chapters located statewide.
