Suellen has been a member of CNPS for 11 years. She was President 3 times, and has been our Conservation Chairperson. She has helped to staff countless tables, and has been on numerous committees. She has been representing CNPS at the planning meetings for the Butte County Habitat Conservation Plan. She has many laudable qualities, but her strongest strong suit is in networking. She is superb at sharing information with people and other organizations about CNPS and the important work of Native Plant Conservation. Thank you, Suellen.
