Summer is almost here, and the nursery is in full bloom! We’re enjoying watching the flowers open on our plants, from the most obvious blossoms on spring flowering perennials to the most inconspicuous – grasses have flowers too. Read more here.

 

 

Volunteer Spotlight: Jack Sherwood

5 Tips for Effective Advocacy

Advocacy is a show of public support for a policy or cause. In our case, it’s actually a combination of many various displays of support for ocean-friendly policies. We never know what will tip the scales in favor or against our causes, which is why it’s important for everyone who’s invested to make their voices heard in every way they can. Together, we are strong, united in our diversity, and a force to be reckoned with. In this campaign, we utilized many forms of speaking out, informing, lobbying, and advocating. View our 5 tips here.

 

 

Intern with us.

We're looking for a Habitat and Restoration intern to assist with planning, implementation, monitoring, and maintenance of habitat restoration projects in the Lagunitas Creek Watershed. Free housing is provided. We're also looking for a non-residential seed collection intern.

 

 

Adopt A California Coast Redwood

The fact that redwoods are fast growing, massive, long-lived, rot resistant, easy to cultivate, and awe-inspiring, make them the ideal icon for action on climate change. Adopt one today.
