Members’ meetings

East Bay CNPS Members’ Meetings are great for:
* Learning about native plants (and wildlife) and their habitats
* Virtually visiting beautiful and interesting places
* Being inspired by conservation challenges and success stories
* Meeting nice people who share your interests

Our meetings are always free and open to everyone, members and nonmembers alike. We meet at 7:30 pm on the fourth Wednesday evening of the month in January-May and September-November, with a slight adjustment in the schedule to avoid Thanksgiving week. Most of our meetings take place at the Orinda Library or Orinda Community Center, which are centrally located in our big, two-county chapter area.

We welcome your ideas for topics or speakers (some of our best programs have come from members’ suggestions), so please feel free to contact Programs chair Sue Rosenthal with your ideas ( or 510-496-6016).

Members’ meetings are on hiatus for the Summer. The next meeting will be on September 27, at the Orinda Library Garden Room. The topic and speaker will be announced in the usual places: the Bay Leaf,,, and the chapter mailing list.
