Ways to Help Preserve California's Native Flora


Please consider joining our efforts to promote native plants and biodiversity in beautiful California. Of the 469 native plants that are known to exist in San Francisco today 24 of those are listed as threatened species. We are working especially hard to bring these marginalized species back to healthy populations but we need you to help us!

Email us, today: yerba.buena.cnps.chapter@gmail.com

Our chapter is 100% volunteer run. Avocation, restoration, education - we are passionate about the native plants of California and have a vision to share what we have learned about them with others.

We have ongoing needs for volunteers to help us on the board, at native plant restoration sites, coordinating field trips and other special events. Please consider sharing your special talents with us while learning more about California's amazing diversity of native plants!
