Special Events

Feed your Ecosystem:

California Native Plant Society - Yerba Buena Chapter (CNPS YBC) welcomes its members and members of the general public for a special event celebrating Native Plants. Discover how to feed your ecosystem by using native plants in your garden. Demonstrations and activities explore how native plants support pollinators, reduce insect pests and encourage fungi and microbes that produce healthy soil.

Native plant seed packets will be given to participants as long as supplies last.
