36 chapters across the state locally promote the CNPS mission. All enjoy the strengths and legal benefits of being one incorporated non-profit organization, but chapters select projects according to interests of local members, elect their own officers, and manage their own finances. The Society office in Sacramento handles common administrative work and is the center point for statewide programs.

When you join CNPS, choose a chapter affiliation to receive the local newsletter. Chapter newsletters have notices of meetings, field trips, plant sales, work projects, and other events. Most CNPS Chapters have their own web pages as well.
