North Coast Chapter - CNPS
Membership Information

What do you get when you join CNPS?

  • the pleasure of knowing that you are contributing to the preservation of California's rich and diverse native flora
  • an exceptional education on California's native plants through field trips and programs
  • the opportunity for first-hand experience growing native plants and learning propagation and culture techniques
  • Fremontia, a quarterly illustrated journal of interest to laymen and professionals alike
  • the Bulletin, a quarterly newsletter geared towards issues, action and events
  • new friends; new places to explore

Additionally, North Coast Chapter members receive the "Darlingtonia," our quarterly chapter newsletter.
Because our chapter is one of several organizations affiliated with the Northcoast Environmental Center , our members can receive a free subscription to the NEC's monthly newspaper, the "Econews". Included with Econews is the newsletter of the Redwood Region Audubon Society, the "Sandpiper".

When you join, be sure to specify that you want to affiliate with the North Coast Chapter. Then contact our membership coordinator so we can immediately add you to our local list.
