The California Botanical Society was founded by Willis Linn Jepson in 1913, since when it has advanced the knowledge of botanical sciences in the Western states of the U.S.


The society services are: the journal Madroño, published since 1916; annual banquets in various California locations along with educational lectures; research support on green plants of Baja, California (enabled by the Annetta Carter Memorial Fund); graduate student support (together with the annual banquet); and community discussions with professional botanists.
