Welcome to the Milo Baker Chapter of the California Native Plant Society (CNPS). Our chapter, which is named after the famous Santa Rosa botanist, is located in Northern California's beautiful Sonoma County. CNPS is a statewide organization whose goals are to increase understanding and appreciation of California's native plants, and to preserve them and their natural habitats for future generations. Membership is open to all.
Call for Action, Volunteers Needed before May 25
Please help us in commenting to urge the City of Santa Rosa to use more California native plants in the new drought tolerant demonstration garden. The City of Santa Rosa is asking for comments for its concept design for the new garden which will be located in downtown Santa Rosa. What a great place to showcase selections from our native flora! They have circulated a map and some images to view. We have made a list of some native plants that would be good suggestions for drought tolerant species that grow in similar clay soils.
