Redbud Chapter - California Native Plant Society


Placer and Nevada Counties are located on the western slope of the Sierra Nevada mountain range between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe. Although these two counties represent only 1.5% of the land mass of California, 35% of its vascular plants are found here. Our native plants grace the landscape in habitats from the Sacramento valley grasslands, through the foothills, and into the high peaks of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. This land area represents a large variation in elevation, rainfall, and temperature. The snowmelt from the rugged peaks feeds into the Yuba, Bear, American and Rubicon Rivers with water to support the more populous areas of the state. 


We normally hold two Native Plant Sales a year. The spring sale is held at Sierra College in Rocklin, and the September sale is in Grass Valley.

Our Field Trips are held mostly in the spring--see newsletter for more information.

  • Chapter meetings are held six times a year, generally in February, March, May, July, October and November.
  • Meetings alternate between Nevada and Placer counties. See the current newsletter for meeting information.
