About California Native Plant Week (CNPW)
The third week of April each year is California Native Plant Week, designed to encourage community groups, schools, and citizens to undertake appropriate activities to promote the conservation, restoration, and appreciation of California's native plants.

Native wildflower bouquet outreach
As we did last year, uur chapter is reaching out to the public by bringing native wildflower bouquets to community locales (libraries, schools, government offices). Wildflowers are collected from member gardens and displayed with additional native plant literature. Further information: Barbara Eisenstein, 626-590-5070, firstname.lastname@example.org
