Held the third Tuesday of every month (except for August), chapter meetings are open to the public; there is no charge. Come early and browse our books. Stay after the program for conversation and refreshments. We meet in the heart of San Diego, in Balboa Park, in Casa Del Prado, Room 101. Casa Del Prado can be reached by car from Village Place off of Park Boulevard (served by the #7 bus), and is across from the west entrance of the San Diego Natural History Museum. The meeting room is handicapped accessible. 

We usually carry a small selection of native plants at our monthly meetings. New members who sign up at the meeting will receive a free plant (if available)

6:30pm-7pm Natives for Novice presentation on beginner native gardening topics
7:00pm-7:30pm is a time for discussion, camaraderie, visiting, and enjoying the sales table.
