California is a biodiversity hotspot.
The San Luis Obispo Chapter teems with it.
We save the plants that make it so.


We’re on a mission to save California’s, and especially San Luis Obispo and northern Santa Barbara County’s, native plants and places using both head and heart. CNPS-SLO brings together science, education, conservation, and gardening to power the native plant movement.

Contributions to the California Native Plant Society – San Luis Obispo are tax-deductible as allowed by law. CNPS Tax ID: 94-6116403.
