Bristlecone Chapter - California Native Plant Society
The Bristlecone Chapter of the CNPS covers an area with some of the most geographic and biologic diversity in the contiguous US, including both the lowest and highest points, two species competing for title of the oldest living thing, extreme heat and extreme cold. This environment has put intense adaptive pressures on the region's native plants, resulting in many rare and endemic species which have always lived on the edge. From alkali flats and sand dunes below sea level to alpine rock gardens, our native plants are unique and wonderful. The Bristlecone Chapter has the privilege of enjoying, learning about, educating others about, and working to preserve our region's invaluable native plant resources.
