Theodore Payne Foundation inspires and educates Southern Californians about
the beauty and ecological benefits of California native plant landscapes.
Fires have once again struck in California and our hearts go out to those effected. See TPF’s fire-wise landscape series on our YouTube channel and our position paper on regeneration versus restoration after The La Tuna Fire.
