Get Involved! CNPS Community Science for California Native Plants
For the first time, the newly updated CNPS Rare Plant Inventory 9.5 makes available public searches on threats and the display of threat summary statistics for over 1,800 rare California native plants.
CNPS has been proud to be the voice for California’s native plants on a global stage, which helps build support for what we care about most here at home.
Threatened by mining, California's tiny and rare Inyo rock daisy is in danger of losing its entire range.
