Maps to Natives

Maps to Natives is an initiative started in 2007 by the Yerba Buena Chapter of the CNPS to collect and disperse the knowledge of native plants and native habitats in the community. Our goal is to create and maintain a library of annotated maps of the Bay Area that highlight places to experience natives plants and habitat. Maps will guide users to and through local gardens, trails, open space preserves, and even the random lot or curbside where natives can be found.

We are currently updating our Maps to Natives project. Please check back when additional maps will be available.

Here is a sample of one map with links to Native Plants on San Bruno Mountain:
