Join us for field trips, meetings, plant sales, and more! Explore our diverse habitats: alpine peaks to valley floors, deserts to wetlands, grasslands to forests. As professionals and amateurs alike, we learn and make a difference together. Non-members are welcome, too!

Shasta Chapter has been serving Shasta, Lassen, Modoc, and Siskiyou counties since 1983. We support California Native Plant Society’s mission to protect California’s native plants and their natural habitats, today and into the future, through science, education, stewardship, gardening, and advocacy.

Botany 101

Join us at our Chapter meetings, special lectures, and workshops to learn about California’s native plants!


Taking its cue from California buckeye, Shasta Chapter goes into a deep summer hibernation to survive our brutal summers.  See our blog for Chapter events (as well as events of other orgs) and come join us as we prepare for fall!
