California Native Plant Society Membership Day & RYL III - Plant Selection
The Orange County and South Coast Chapters of the California Native Plant Society will be at Tree of Life Nursery to celebrate membership to this statewide environmental organization. Members will be giving informative talks on natives throughout the day and will be available to share their extensive knowledge of natives and to help you find the right plants for your yard. The public is invited to join us and learn about the benefits of membership (like receiving 10% off all plant purchases at Tree of Life) while also getting some great plant advice!
