About the CNPS Legislation Program

The Legislative Program is a sub-program of the Conservation Program. The Legislative Program's mission is to ensure that persons formulating laws and regulations at all levels -- local, state, and federal -- understand the importance of California's native flora and the serious threats facing the long-term survival of many species. A part-time staff legislative advocate helps coordinate state issues, while local chapter volunteers work closely with the Conservation Program.

Because state and federal Endangered Species Acts provide the most fundamental protection for plants in most instances, much of the work of CNPS relies on and invokes these laws.
