About

Help maintain and enhance the Laguna Environmental Center's "outdoor classroom." Activities include planting, weeding, spreading wood chips, and general site cleanup.

The native plant landscape includes wildflowers, grasses, sedges, trees, forbes and herbaceous plants. There are 14 heritage fruit trees around the farmhouse as well as a small vegetable garden to represent the period the farmhouse was constructed. 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 planted with wetland plants, and an observation deck suitable for bird watching, photography, or just enjoying the quiet and the vistas.

You can come once or multiple times. No RSVP is required, unless you are bringing a group of 4 or more people. Only heavy rain cancels. Wear clothes that can get dirty. Snacks and tools are provided but please bring water, gloves and friends!

We are also looking for several people with gardening experience to be the main stewards who will work closely with staff as needed, perform routine maintenance (perhaps even adopting an area), and serving as team leaders on scheduled public work days.
