CNPS solicits information about proposed changes to the CNPS Inventory via the Rare Plant Status Review Process. The CNPS Rare Plant Program encourages anyone who has knowledge about native plants, particularly rare plants, to contribute their comments/data as a Rare Plant Status Reviewer via the Rare Plant Status Review Forum.
