EDITOR: On behalf of the El Dorado Chapter of the California Native Plant Society (CNPS), we’d like to offer a big thank you to all the nurseries, growers, volunteers and others that made our Annual Fall Native Plant Sale this past weekend (Oct. 6) such a huge success.

The funds raised through the generosity of the hundreds of shoppers — local home and business owners, curious beginners, and seasoned regulars to native landscaping (many attracted to the sale through the lovely article and photos that appeared in the Mountain Democrat the day before) and all those interested in learning more about native plants (and even weeds through our new “Attack of the Invasives” El Dorado County weed display) — furthers our outreach and education efforts in the County for the enjoyment and preservation of our native plant heritage.

El Dorado CNPS is dedicated to working together as a community can preserve and protect our unique California plants for future generations, in particular through our Clark Youth Grant Program in area schools that educates children about our unique floral and natural history.

A hearty “thank you” to the following businesses and volunteers, without whom the Fall Native Plant Sale, and the El Dorado CNPS itself, would not be possible:

Special thanks to our grower and nursery donors and helpers: Mahala Young and Jinnah Benn of Lotus Valley Natives; Taylor Lewis and Cornflower Farms in Elk Grove; Steve Dowty and his natives nursery on Cedar Ravine; Roger Snell and High Ranch Nursery in Loomis; Karen Schambach and the Center for Sierra Nevada Conservation (CSNC); and Brian Austin at Chili Bar. Other individual growers include Ben Parks, Doni Mae, Janet Cicero and Rocky, and Cindy Podsiadlo,

Our next public event is Nov. 27 with a special presentation by local arborist John Kipping on “The Oaks of El Dorado County,” including identification and natural history, uses by indigenous peoples, and best landscape practices for preserving them on your property and using them in your landscaping designs.

For complete information on this and other upcoming events, including our Spring Native Plant Sale, see our Website at eldoradocnps.org or visit our Facebook page at facebook.com/eldoradoCNPS. There you will find more information on our regular activities, including walks, presentations, workshops, special projects, and our Clark Youth Grant Program. The California Native Plant Society is a tax-deductible 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization.
