Are you interested in learning about native plants and nature in general? Watching beautiful slide shows? Meeting like-minded nature-lovers? That’s what we do at East Bay CNPS members meetings (open to everyone, member or not), and we invite you to join us! Recent presentation topics have included “California’s Wild Lichens” (Stephen Sharnoff), “A Tale of Two City Butterflies” (Liam O’Brien), “Coping with Invasive Pathogens in the Nursery, the Garden, and the Wild” (Theo Fitanides), “Plants and Landscapes of the West” (Ted Kipping), “Native Hedgerows for Wildlife Habitat” (Pete Veilleux), and the inspiring environmental film “Rebels with a Cause.”
Our meetings take place at 7:30 pm on the fourth Wednesday evening of the month in January-May and September-November (our November meeting is often held on the third Wednesday to avoid Thanksgiving week). We usually meet at the Orinda Library, which is near Hwy 24 and walking distance from the Orinda BART station. Everyone is welcome, and the meetings are free.
Check the online Bay Leaf newsletter (ebcnps.org/newsletter) or the Meetings page of the East Bay CNPS website (ebcnps.org/meetings) for announcements of future meetings. You can also sign up on the website home page to receive notifications via email (“Sign Up for EBCNPS News”).

Members’ Photo Night!
Location: Garden Room, Orinda Public Library
Our first members’ photo night brought in gorgeous and fascinating photos of plants and landscapes, insect behavior, field trips, and restoration projects. Come to share your images or just to enjoy those that others bring, along with tasty refreshments (nonmembers are most welcome to present and/or enjoy). Contact Sue Rosenthal at firstname.lastname@example.org or 510-496-6016 by January 20 if you’ll be bringing images or if you have questions about the format.
