Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: National Park Service

Each year the Presidio Nursery cares for over 100,000 native plants to be used in restoration projects throughout the Presidio and other park sites. Volunteers sustain this program, providing essential support for our largest nursery facility. Activities vary throughout the seasons, and include seed collection, seed cleaning, transplanting, pruning, weeding, composting, pot washing, nursery maintenance, and general care of our Habitat Demonstration Garden.
