Protecting and celebrating our local flora

The Bristlecone Chapter of CNPS, founded by Mary DeDecker and other native plant enthusiasts in 1982, is named for the most aged of the world’s trees. We are one of 36 statewide chapters working to protect and celebrate California’s native plants. We invite you to get to know us at our meetings, field trips, plant sales, and other fun events!
