Greenhouse

At Chesapeake Natives Inc, it is our mission to protect, promote, and propagate plant species that are native to the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. We are a small, volunteer-based group which operates out of beautiful Rosaryville State Park. Our greenhouse is a historic gem at 80 years old!

We are open for volunteers Monday-Friday 10AM-3PM and are in search of volunteers to help primarily, with potting up plants, removing invasive species, and maintaining demonstration gardens.

If interested, please reach out to volunteer@chesapeakenatives.org

We look forward to meeting you!

About Chesapeake Natives Inc.

Location:

9640 Rosaryville Road, Upper Marlboro, MD 20772, US

Mission Statement

Chesapeake Natives promotes, protects, and propagates plants native to the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.

Description

Chesapeake Natives is a small, busy, volunteer driven non-profit. We're enthusiastic promoters of native plants, especially those of the Chesapeake Watershed. These plants have grown vigorously in our region for thousands of years and are the best choice for restoring healthy watersheds and diverse wildlife to our area.

We responsibly gather seeds from wild native plant populations, grow them in our nursery and demonstration gardens, sell them at plant sales around the area and work with schools setting up rain and butterfly gardens.

Currently, while propagating native plants, we are also stabilizing and restoring a derelict greenhouse in Rosaryville State Park near Upper Marlboro.
