More on Helping Stop Native Plant Extinction

From the California Native Plant Society

Even if your are not in the district of these five legislators your letters will help

5 Legislators Can Help Us Stop Native Plant Extinction – Is Yours One of Them?

Budget deliberations are underway this week at the state Capitol, and biodiversity is on the table. Asm. Ash Kalra of San Jose has requested $2M to help California Plant Rescue (CaPR) reach its goal of seed-banking 75 percent of California’s rare plants by 2020. CaPR is already more than 50 percent towards its goal, an important target set by the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity. You can help!

If you are represented by one of these members, please contact them before Friday! Sample script and contact info here.

  • Asm Kevin McCarty (Sacramento)
  • Sen Holly Mitchell (LA)
  • Sen Nancy Skinner (East Bay) 
  • Asm Phil Ting (San Francisco) 
  • Asm Shirley Weber (San Diego)

Also, if you live in Asm. Ash Kalra’s district, please be sure to thank him for supporting California’s native plant biodiversity!
