In 2010, the California State Assembly and Senate approved Resolution ACR 173 (Evans) establishing California Native Plant Week. This measure proclaims the 3rd week of April, each year, as California Native Plant Week and encourages community groups, schools, and citizens to undertake appropriate activities to promote the conservation, restoration, and appreciation of California’s native plants.
Sponsored by the California Native Plant Society (Los Angeles / Santa Monica Mountains Chapter) and the Theodore Payne Foundation for Wild Flowers and Native Plants, the Native Plant Week Symposium includes a wildflower show, plant and book sale, activity tables, and demonstrations.
Admission is free.
