GET DIRTY: Many of our volunteer opportunities take place in the field. These are often pop-up events that will be listed on our calendar. Some recurring volunteer events that happen every year include our Native Plant Salvages (January-March) and McLane Creek Nature Trail Work Parties (April - July). These are always a fun way to spend time outdoors with wonderful people, and to learn native plant ID!
PLANT NURSERY: Attend a maintenance work party and get to know many of our other fabulous volunteers! Our plant nursery is where we store salvaged plants that are used for local restoration projects and sold at our annual plant sale. Tasks include plant potting/weeding, propagation, equipment organization (tools, pots, plants, etc), and irrigation monitoring.
SPECIAL EVENTS: We have many fun community events throughout the year, where anybody can come out, meet like-minded friends, and support the mission of the Native Plant Salvage. While many of our events change from year to year, a few that happen every year are: the Annual Dinner (February), the Water-wise Plant Sale (May), and Garden Opens (Year Round). If you would like to attend these fundraisers, or volunteer at the events, keep up with our calendar!
