Help Grow Native Plants in Walnut Creek - 2nd Monday

Save to Favorites

Walnut Creek Open Space Foundation

  • 21 people are interested

We grow local native plants for use in habitat restoration projects in the Walnut Creek Open Space.

You will be propagating, weeding, and potting up (transplanting into larger pots), and doing general nursery chores like keeping everything organized.

This is an ongoing group that meets the second Monday of the month. You do not have to commit to being there every month.

Our organization also plants what we grow in our nursery in our restoration projects in Lime Ridge and Shell Ridge. Restoration groups meet regularly on Tuesdays and Saturdays and occasionally at other times. See separate listings for details.

Mission Statement

The Walnut Creek Open Space Foundation works to preserve and enhance Walnut Creek's 2700 acres of open space and to educate area residents so that they can enjoy this wonderful resource.

Description

Our primary activity is doing habitat restoration in the Walnut Creek Open Space. We have ongoing projects at Bayberry Pond, Rock Oak, Indian Valley Pond, Deer Lake, and Fossil Hill. We do occasional work in other locations in the Open Space.

We also have a native plant nursery where we propagate many of the plants we use in our restoration projects.

When opportunities arise, we work to acquire additional open space lands.
