Due to COVID-19, all of our volunteer programs (except for Garden Volunteer Days) are currently on hold and we are unable to accommodate new applications and requests. We will continue to monitor the situation and aim to resume these vital programs as soon as it's safe to do so. Until then, please sign up to receive our e-News and stay current on our volunteer opportunities. We hope to see you and the rest of our wonderful community of volunteers soon!

Native Plant Garden Volunteer Days

New COVID-19 Safety Precautions: Limited to 6 volunteers, please RSVP to secure a spot. Face masks will be required when you arrive, but may be lowered after volunteers are assigned to an area and social distancing (6 feet) can be maintained. Since gardeners are in and out of contact with staff and volunteers, it's best to keep the mask on continuously out of an abundance of caution and respect for others. Staff members will be roaming the site to ensure any questions are answered and instructions are provided. Please bring your own gloves, hand tools, snacks, and water bottle.

Date: First Friday of the month
Time: 9:00am – 12:00pm
Location: Laguna Environmental Center
Required Experience Qualifications: No experience needed. Training is provided.
RSVP is required.

Volunteers are essential in beautifying our site. Activities include planting, weeding, spreading wood chips, and general site cleanup. The native plant landscape includes wildflowers, grasses, sedges, trees, forbs and herbaceous plants. The site also includes beautiful views, spots to have a picnic, a living willow tunnel in the Children's Playscape, a bridge over a swale, a pond with wetland plants, and an observation deck.

Share your expertise and passion for gardening by helping our native plant garden thrive!
