What We Do
We’re on a mission to save California’s native plants and places using both head and heart. CNPS brings together science, education, conservation, and gardening to power the native plant movement.
Why We Do It
California has more plants than any other state in the nation.
At least one third of California’s native plants are found nowhere else in the world.
Plants are the foundation of our ecosystems.
