North Coast Chapter - CNPS

Northern California Rare Plant Guide

Several CNPS North Coast Chapter members are assisting in the compilation of species accounts and photographs of the CNPS list 1B species (plants considered rare, threatened or endangered in California and elsewhere) of the North Coast for a Northern California Rare Plant Guide expected to be published by U.C. Press at the end of this year. Species accounts have been compiled but photographs of the species and their habitats are still being compiled. Any photographs of the species and/or habitat of these plants and/or any unique species features or habitat personal observations are requested and would be very much appreciated. All photographs used will credit the source below the photo, and all photographs submitted will be handled with care and returned in a timely manner. Please contact either John McRae (2525 Daffodil Ave., McKinleyville, CA 95521, Ph.# 707-839-5762) or Clare Golec (2551 Cropley Way, Arcata, CA 95521, Ph.# 707-822-6001) if you could contribute any photographs or information on the following species.
