California Native Plant Society has a long history of productive partnerships with other nonprofits, government agencies, and independent consultants. From the local, state, and federal agencies and consultants who use our online Rare Plant Inventory and Manual of California databases daily, to the nurseries who share their inventories on Calscape, CNPS continues to build positive and productive relationships.

CNPS Organizational Membership provides a way for consultants, companies, and agencies, as well as small nonprofits and nurseries, to support CNPS while obtaining an additional suite of benefits beyond those available for individual memberships.
