CDFA was joined today by CalFire and the University of California division of Agriculture and Natural Resources at the 55th Annual California Native American Day on the West Steps of the State Capitol. CDFA provided information about integrated pest control practices to protect California’s agriculture, including citrus pest and disease prevention, in addition information about department grant programs, and the Farm to School Program.
This was the first in-person California Native American Day since 2019. This year’s theme, “Stand Strong Together,” celebrates and honors the historical and cultural contributions of California Native Americans. The California Tribal Chairpersons’ Association is the host organization for Native American Day, working in partnership with the Native American Heritage Commission and the Native American Day Planning Committee
