The California Native Plant Society (CNPS) is the state’s leading resource for information on California native plants. The San Diego Chapter of CNPS has over 800 members and more than 5000 social media contacts who promote the conservation, appreciation, and use of native plants for the health and well-being of all.

CNPS-San Diego hosts an annual Spring Garden Tour, two annual California Native Gardening Workshops, and two annual California Native Plant Sales. These activities complement each other to inspire people to include California native plants in their home landscapes and provide the practical tools to succeed. Tickets are sold for the tour and workshops at a nominal charge, thus increasing the number of participants given exposure to all the resources available at these events. The plant sales have no admission fee and are open to the public.

These events:

•  Inspire people with the beauty, ease of care, and affordability of water-wise native gardens in private and public settings

•  Work with a coalition of public agencies, nonprofits, and businesses to deliver a strong, unified message

•  Increase awareness of the impacts of common landscaping practices on water use, water quality, and the ecology of built environments

•  Demonstrate landscaping practices that improve water usage and minimize pollutant runoff
