What we're about

The California Native Plant Society is a statewide non-profit organization of amateurs and professionals. Our goals are to increase understanding of California’s native flora and to preserve this rich natural heritage for future generations. The Yerba Buena Chapter encompasses San Francisco and northern San Mateo Counties and is named for the tiny fragrant mint Satureja douglasii found in this area.

Chapter Activities are as diverse as our membership and range from conservation and habitat restoration to native plant gardening, hiking and photography.
