Queer Native Plant Nursery Event (Palo Alto)
April 12 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
This volunteer program is an affinity space for folks that identify as LGBTQ+ and is led by staff that identify as Queer. Save the Bay is a Bay Area environmental non-profit working to protect and restore the San Francisco Bay for people and wildlife. One of the ways we strive to meet our mission is through community based stewardship led by our Habitat Restoration Team. Our Native Plant Nursery at the Palo Alto Baylands Preserve grows up to 50,000 plants per year that will eventually be planted out to one of our several restoration sites along the shoreline of the Bay. In volunteering with our Native Plant Nursery you’ll have the opportunity to connect with the diversity of plants and people that make the Bay Area so special. We encourage folks with no prior experience in habitat restoration to volunteer with us and welcome any feedback to improve accessibility to our programs. Nursery volunteer tasks can include anything from seed cleaning to transplanting. We ask volunteers to bring water bottles, snacks, wear long pants and closed toe shoes that they feel comfortable getting dirty. The indoor space in the nursery is not insulated so we asks folks to dress for the weather. All tools and guidance will be provided by Save the Bay staff. We look forward to learning and growing together in community with you!
Accessibility: Our Palo Alto Baylands Nursery is located along a flat gravel trail about 200 feet from a paved parking lot. There is a port-o-potty available in the parking lot for use.
