The Redwood Creek Native Plant Nursery is a non-profit nursery that grows native plants and performs restoration activities for habitat restoration within the Redwood Creek watershed (which includes the Muir Woods National Monument). 

Please join us for hands-on botany, horticulture, and restoration in the nation's premier urban national park. 

Drop-in Volunteer Programs: Every Wednesday and Saturday 10AM to 1PM 

Volunteers participate in every aspect of nursery operation, from seed collection to outplanting. Regular activities include transplanting, sowing seeds, weeding, and watering. On Wednesday, September 29th we will be doing transplanting and constructing deer guards. 

Activities take place both at the nursery and in the field at the restoration or seed-collection areas throughout the park. 

Again, no experience is necessary to volunteer and there is no need to register, though you may want to call ahead to find out what activities we have planned.
