Presidio Nursery Position (Wednesdays)

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. Join this community of plant enthusiasts and learn about native plants as you help us grow our national park!


When: Wednesdays (commitment required) - see below for more info:


  • Wednesdays (weekly) - The Presidio Nursery has an evolving and welcoming group of "Regulars" who come on Wednesday afternoons. If you're looking to join this community, we're asking for a loose commitment of about six Wednesday afternoons ideally within one year of joining . This group is dedicated to nurturing community and caring for one another, which often includes masking and socially distancing more than you may see elsewhere.

To join us, please email ´╗┐the nursery team at PresidioNursery@parksconservancy.org to be invited to our next new Wednesday volunteer date.
