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.


Volunteers Needed

Potting workshop, Cal Flora Nursery, Santa Rosa , Sunday, May 17, 10 AM  

We will meet at the Cal Flora Nursery to pot up ArctostaphylosCeanothus, Myrica, and other plants. We will be planting liners from Shooting Star Nursery. Please come and help us with this very important event, we need many members to help out. No experience necessary, and we will provide training as needed.  We need members to take these plants home to grow on until the October 10 plant sale. This is the third of four workshops that get us ready for the plant sale. The fourth will be in August at Casa Grande High School. John Shribbs, a teacher at the school, has volunteered growing space at a nursery at the high school. Call Liz at 833-2063 with any questions. See you there.
