The Wildlands is a native habitat garden at Walgrove Elementary School in West LA. It has forest, meadow, arroyo, coast and desert zones designed to mimic the LA watershed with dry streams and bioswales. Walgrove also has a student farm with chickens, fruit trees and seasonal crops. The gardens are used for environmental education, only open to volunteers and the Theodore Payne Garden Tour. There is always something to do in the Wildlands; whether pulling weeds, fixing pathways, creating art, installing plants or moving boulders. Very family friendly environment, but please no dogs. Work at your own pace, with a group, or on your own. Water and bathrooms available. Volunteers should check in at the garden gate.
Please join us Saturday morning in the garden, Feb. 1st and March 7th. More dates to be posted soon. Alternate work days can be scheduled, contact us for more info. Arrive at anytime, stay as long as you want.
Weather Note: Unless it's heavy rain, we will be there.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
