Welcome to the Marin Chapter of the California Native Plant Society

Our chapter serves Marin County in Northern California.

The California Native Plant Society (CNPS) is a statewide organization whose goals are to increase understanding and appreciation of California’s native plants, and to preserve them and their natural habitats for future generations. 

Membership is open to all.

Our logo is the Tiburon Mariposa (Calochortus tiburonensis)

Marin CNPS LogoThis extremely rare lily can be seen blooming from the end of May through mid-June among the serpentine rocks of Ring Mountain in Marin County. In fact, this is the only place in the world it has ever been found growing in the wild. It was first noticed by botanists in 1971 when the small patch of land on which it lives passed from private into public hands. The plant is now in cultivation and can be seen in botanic gardens.
