The California Native Plant Society (CNPS) was founded in 1965  as a volunteer organization dedicated to the preservation and celebration of California’s native flora. The organization has since grown to have 35 chapters throughout the state. CNPS plays a critical role in plant conservation and and is a leading voice in plant science and native plant appreciation.

The Yolo Colusa Chapter supports research, education, and advocacy aimed at promoting natural habitat conservation to protect native plant species, especially rare and endangered taxa, in Yolo and Colusa Counties. The region includes portions of the Sacramento Valley as well as the botanically rich inner North Coast Ranges. Our activities include meetings, talks, workshops, field trips, and hikes.

Membership is open to anyone who appreciates native plants. Both members and non-members are welcome to join us in activities such as monthly meetings, rare plant surveys, and most field trips. Sign up here to get on our email list.
