The California Native Plant Society welcomes one and all – from students to professionals, from hobbyists to dedicated gardeners, from apartment dwellers to homeowners, from city folk to suburbanites to rural residents – to join the Society to learn about California’s rich and diverse native plant flora and support efforts to conserve native plants and habitats throughout the state.
CNPS has a headquarters office in Sacramento, which handles membership, and 32 local chapters. The South Coast Chapter serves South Los Angeles County, ranging from LAX on the north end, to Long Beach in the south, and to Whittier in the east.
South Coast Chapter members have a wide range of native flora interests, and receive numerous supporting benefits, from simply learning more from experts, to conservation, gardening, hikes and tours, plant sales, and other activities.
As a member, besides participation in our educational program meetings and other events (see our calendar), you will receive three quarterly publications:
- The South Coast Chapter newsletter
- The scholarly journal Fremontia covering environmental and science issues (published three times per year)
- The CNPS Bulletin with statewide announcements and news developments
