THE REDBUD CHAPTER OF NEVADA AND PLACER COUNTIES

Placer and Nevada Counties are located on the western slope of the Sierra Nevada mountain range between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe. Although these two counties represent only 1.5% of the land mass of California, 35% of its vascular plants are found here. Our native plants grace the landscape in habitats from the Sacramento valley grasslands, through the foothills, and into the high peaks of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. This land area represents a large variation in elevation, rainfall, and temperature. The snowmelt from the rugged peaks feeds into the Yuba, Bear, American and Rubicon Rivers with water to support the more populous areas of the state.

Events

We normally hold two Native Plant Sales a year. The spring sale is held at Sierra College in Rocklin, and the September sale is in Grass Valley.

  • Our Field Trips are held mostly in the spring--see newsletter for more information.
  • Chapter meetings are held six times a year, generally in February, March, May, July, October and November. Meetings alternate between Nevada and Placer counties. See the current newsletter for meeting information.

Our usual meeting places are:

  • Nevada County Library
    980 Helling Way, Nevada City
    At the intersection of Hwy 49 and Hwy 20 in Nevada City, turn west toward Downieville on Hwy 49. Drive approximately 1 mile, turning right at the Nevada County Government Office Buildings complex. Bear to the right to reach the library.
  • Auburn Civic Center
    1225 Lincoln Way, Auburn, CA
    From Highway 49 in Auburn, just after 49 passes under I-80, there is a T intersection.  Continue straight ahead at the intersection to the Civic Center. The building looks like an old school (which it is).  Go to the large parking lot behind the building and look for the Rose Room sign.
