Restoration & Conservation

Supporting Endangered Species with Native Plant Nursery Expansion

This has been an exciting time for our native plant nursery. We are growing more plants than ever for our own projects, and on a contract basis for our partners.

This last year we sold more than 10,000 plants including 3,000 violas for Salt Point State Park and 1,500 narrow leafed milkweed for restoration projects throughout Sonoma County.

Read more about our nursery expansion in the November issue of our e-news.

Take Flight With Us!

So much gratitude! Thanks to a small group of committed supporters we are able to launch a $150,000 Challenge.

Proving that Margaret Mead was right when she said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it is the only thing that ever has,” this small group came together to form a challenge they hope will inspire you.

Please help us turn $150,000 into $300,000!
