Title of Talk: Native Plant Horticulture: The CNPS Bloom!California campaign

View the recording here.

As a program representative with the Statewide CNPS Bloom!California initiative, Maya Argaman will present a general overview of the Bloom! California campaign.  It’s aim is to increase native plant sales and encourage planting native plants throughout California’s built environment—from backyard gardens to city parks to business fronts and more. She will review the program elements, including the plants featured in the campaign, and partner nurseries in the Sacramento area and discuss other programs the CNPS Horticulture team is currently working on.

Speaker Bio:

Maya graduated from UC Davis with a degree in Environmental Science and Management, where she fell in love with native plants in both the natural and built environment. Before CNPS, she was a field technician for both the Bureau of Land Management in New Mexico and the Forest Service in the Sierras. In her free time she loves to surf, go on bike rides, and cook with friends.
