California Native Plant Society (CNPS) 2018 Conservation Conference

  • Los Angeles Airport Marriott 5855 West Century Boulevard Los Angeles, CA, 90045 United States (map)


Every 3 years, the CNPS Conservation Conference brings together California’s conservation community for the largest gathering of its kind. Scientific sessions cover a broad spectrum of topics, and special events provide time for collaboration, networking, and fun.

Pre-conference workshops provide professional skills training, while field trips allow you to get to know local plants with local experts. Three days of scientific sessions and special events provide a forum for collaboration and appreciation of our beautifully diverse flora. You will have opportunities to connect with like-minded others, while learning about current research and trends, and contributing to future plans for California’s native plants and natural habitats.


Whether your career centers around natural resources or you just love native plants, the CNPS Conservation Conference will have something for you. Join more than 1,000 attendees including professional and amateur botanists, biologists, ecologists, conservationists, landscaping professionals, nursery managers, land use planners, students, agency staff, policymakers, environmentalists, researchers, backyard gardeners, volunteers, and native plant lovers from California and beyond! CNPS members are especially encouraged to attend and represent their local chapters and initiatives from around the state.
