CNPS 2015 Conservation Conference

The CNPS 2015 Conservation Conference is coming up January 13-17 in San Jose!

Join over 1000 attendees in the heart of Silicon Valley for this historic event. The conference will begin with two days of skill-building workshops and field trips to area locations. The main conference starts on the 15th, with keynote speakers (including Michael Soulé!) and over 200 presentations in 24 sessions by students, researchers, and CNPS chapters.  The event will host fun social events, art, poetry, music, and photography, too – not to mention your chance to explore the Bay Area and more from the ideal central location of San Jose.

To get even more involved, you can present a paper or poster (call for abstracts ends July 31), volunteer, and sponsor or exhibit to get special benefits and connect with the biggest gathering of conservationists and native plant enthusiasts in the State of California.  Kicking off the 50th anniversary of CNPS, this conference will be larger and more exciting than ever before, so don’t miss out – be a part of the discussion about what the next 50 years will hold! Discounted early registration is open July 15 to October 31 online. Visit or e-mail for more information.
