The Redbud Chapter of the California Native Plant Society welcomes all native-plant lovers in Nevada and Placer counties. We are dedicated to exploring, educating, researching, and writing about the diversity and beauty of our native flora. We:
  • Lead field trips to stunning foothill and mountain wildflower displays.
  • Offer 100s of locally adapted, hand-picked native plants at our fall sale.
  • Advocate for native flora and organize conservation projects.
  • Meet up to propagate plants and learn ethnobotany first-hand.
  • Publish two books on over 700 local wildflowers, trees and shrubs.
Together, we explore and restore nature, and find new friends!
