California Native Plant Society - East Bay Chapter
The mission of the California Native Plant Society is to conserve California native plants and their natural habitats, and increase understanding, appreciation, and horticultural use of native plants.
The California Native Plant Society (CNPS) was formed in 1965 in the East Bay region. Today it is a statewide organization with thirty-three chapters. The East Bay Chapter covers Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. The state organization and the local chapters work together to increase understanding of California's native flora and to preserve this rich resource for future generations.
Educational Grants Program: Myrtle Wolf Scholarship Fund
The Myrtle Wolf Scholarship Fund honors the late Myrtle Wolf (1913-2012), a longtime Oakland teacher, who on retirement, devoted herself to California’s native flora. She was a member of the California Native Plant Society for over 30 years, where she worked on the fundraising annual plant sales and promoted the use of native plants in the California landscape. She was made a Fellow of CNPS in 1987. She was also a supported of the UC Botanical Garden, where the library was named for her in 2000.
The review committee will consider proposals from students at East Bay colleges and universities for the study of California Native plants. “East Bay” means Alameda and Contra Costa Counties.
