California Native Plant Society’s student workshops provide aspiring botanists, biologists, and ecologists the scientific skills and practical experience necessary to assess, manage, and protect native plants and lands in California and beyond. Current students and graduates within 1-year are welcome to attend the student workshops. Also check out our Plant Science Workshops.

February and March 2019, CNPS’s rare plant team wants to come to your college! Our rare plant team would love to present on collecting vouchers and completing California Natural Diversity Database forms. Email Elizabeth at to schedule a time.
