Marin Chapter Turns 50!

In 2024, we are celebrating our talented and dedicated people and all they have achieved, as well as planning some new paths for the future. We have accomplished a lot, but our tough and beautiful native plants still need an advocate. We invite you to join us in our mission and help celebrate our native flora.

Marin Native Plant Challenge

Locate and photo-document 50 native plants in Marin’s glorious wildlands and be eligible for a drawing at our August 24th celebration. Working list with hints provided.

We need to think about the wider effects of the choices we make about our property. Join us on Instagram at #marincnps to learn 50 simple changes you can make that benefit all living things, not just humans.
