Sign in and reserve your free ticket to shop for California native plants! Reservations are required. Reservations are per member household. For example, Jane Smith reserves 1 ticket for 8 am. She and the other named adult on her membership card receive entry to the GNN at 8 am. A household entry includes the named adults on membership card and children/grandchildren 17 and under.
