I am a volunteer for Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden (RSABG.ORG) and from 2010-2012 I wrote a monthly article for the volunteer newsletter "Oak Notes" called "Plant of the Month". The purpose was to help educate the volunteers and others on native plants they might encounter in the Garden. The newsletter took the summer off and by then end of my two season assignment I had written 19 short articles on CA Native Plants. I have republished them here.
