NATIVE PLANT NURSERY

At the Friends of Sausal Creek Native Plant Nursery, we propagate and grow about 150 of the 240 different species of plants native to the Sausal Creek Watershed.

Seeds are collected regularly on seed hikes and brought back to the nursery for planting. In addition to sowing seeds and transplanting, volunteers spend time watering, weeding, and pruning. At various times, volunteers are also needed for construction work, installing irrigation equipment, and creating educational materials and signs. Working at the nursery provides an in-depth education in the propagation, care, and use of native plants, as well as the diverse ecological communities present in the watershed.
