Welcome to Santa Cruz County CNPS
The California Native Plant Society (CNPS) is a statewide non-profit organization of amateurs and professionals with a common interest in California’s native plants. CNPS seek to increase understanding and appreciation of California’s native plants and to preserve them in their natural habitat through scientific activities, education, and conservation.
The statewide CNPS organization is broken into 35 regional chapters. The Santa Cruz County Chapter ranges from the Santa Cruz Mountains to Watsonville. Each chapter is independent but receives support and guidance form the State Office.
Santa Cruz CNPS Plant Sale
The Santa Cruz California Native Plant Society holds our famous plant sale several times per year, usually once in the spring and once in the fall. This is an opportunity to get great plants for your yard and support native plants, habitat restoration and your local CNPS chapter.
