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.


News: Donated Books!!

The Milo Baker Chapter received a donation of books in 1984 when our member Marion passed. Some are very interesting.  A handful of select titles were donated to the Jepson Herbarium at UC Berkeley, and the remainder are being sold for donation to support the Milo Baker Chapter.  Please see the list of books, and if you are interested in making a donation for any of them, contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
