Restoration & Conservation

Nursery Expansion

Thanks to the generous support from our community, we are building a hoop house for endangered species propagation, followed by expanding our existing nursery to grow more native plants.

In 2018 we collaborated with the California Native Plant Society (CNPS) and built a shared nursery space. This 1,200 square foot structure was created in compliance with all the new nursery best management practices to protect native plants from disease. CNPS now holds their annual plant sale at the LEC, and we grow our plants for projects like the recent Colgan Creek restoration. Together we have grown thousands of native plants that are now healthy and thriving in people’s back yards and on our public lands.

Read more about our nursery expansion in the July issue of our E-news.
