CNPS regularly recognizes members for outstanding contributions to the preservation and appreciation of California's native flora through its Volunteer Regcognition Award. CNPS is grateful for all these volunteers have done.
Since 1995, Gabi McLean and Cliff McLean's contributions to programs, teaching, field trips, plant sales, and local advocacy have increased membership and active participation in the San Gabriel Mountains Chapter. Gabi served as chapter president from 2005 to 2012, and Cliff as chapter vice-president and membership chair during that time. By their active support of the March Chapter Council meetings and wecoming attitude, and their participation in many statewide activities, they have materially benefited CNPS. Both are life members of the Society.
