For wildlife, for us

Development projects threaten rare plants and critical habitats in native landscapes worldwide, especially in densely populated areas like San Diego and Imperial counties. To counter these threats, our conservation efforts employ a multifaceted approach. We engage with agencies, stakeholders, scientists, concerned CNPS members, and organizational allies, collaborating to apply the latest science in native plant ecology and environmental laws. Together, we safeguard our precious natural resources.

Ultimately, our goal is to cultivate environments where native plants not only survive but thrive, benefiting both the ecosystems they inhabit and the communities that depend on them for essential ecosystem services and the beauty they provide. Where native plants thrive, so do the people that live nearby.
